A researcher at the NUS demonstrates the self-healing abilities of an artificial, transparent skin
ACES, or Asynchronous Coded Electronic Skin, comprises up to 100 small sensors to replicate a sense of feeling.
- Researchers say it can process information faster than the nervous system
- The skin is able to recognise 20 to 30 different textures
- The technology is still in the experimental stage
Singapore researchers have developed “electronic skin” capable of recreating a sense of touch, an innovation they hope will allow people with prosthetic limbs to detect objects, as well as feel texture, or even temperature and pain.
