Stretchable, Skin-Like Sensor
Added Apr 2, 2012 | Rate View top rated
Using carbon nanotubes bent to act as springs, Stanford University researchers have developed a stretchable, transparent skin-like sensor. The sensor can be stretched to over twice its original length and bounce back perfectly to its original shape. It can sense pressure from a firm pinch to thousands of pounds. The sensor could have applications in prosthetic limbs, robotics, and touch-sensitive computer displays.
