If you have ever had your blood drawn, whether to check your cholesterol, kidney function, hormone levels, blood sugar, or as part of a general checkup, you might have wondered why there is not an easier, less painful way.
The device senses and wirelessly transmits signals related to pulse, sweat, and ultraviolet exposure, without bulky chips or batteries.
The sophisticated artificial skin sweats where and how much the researchers want it to. This was reported in an Angewandte Chemie article by Danqing Liu and first author Yuanyuan Zhan.
Penn State-led researchers develop first artificial skin to maintain cognitive characteristics when deformed.
A new artificial skin developed at Caltech can now give robots the ability to sense temperature, pressure, and even toxic chemicals through a simple touch.
Robot arms could become safer in industrial settings by applying an artificial skin containing proximity heat sensors to detect humans in all directions.
In this episode, we talk about how a group of researchers were inspired by the adaptive immune system found in humans to fortify vulnerable neural networks and a joint effort between universities to create electric skin with unmatched performance.
Using a highly-scalable approach to creating dense sensor networks, yet requiring only a pair of address lines, these researchers have taken inspiration from the human somatosensory system for a rapid-response sensitive sense of electronic touch.
Skin-integrated electronics usher in a new age of human-machine interface for robotic virtual reality
Demonstrated by researchers in Hong Kong, this closed-loop human-machine interface (CL-HMI) system lets you take control of a robot via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, or the Internet — and to feel what it feels.
Engineers show how to print dense transistor arrays on skin-like materials to create stretchable circuits that flex with the body to perform applications yet to be imagined.
The design could lead to conformable wearable monitors to track skin cancer and other conditions.
From microwave ovens to Wi-Fi connections, the radio waves that permeate the environment are not just signals of energy consumed but are also sources of energy themselves.
Researchers in Carnegie Mellon University’s Soft Machines Lab have developed a new silver-hydrogel composite for artificial skin that combines high electrical conductivity with soft, stretchable biocompatibility.
EPFL engineers, working in association with startup Xsensio, have developed a wearable sensing chip that can measure the concentration of cortisol – the stress hormone – in human sweat.
