Human skin is soft, flexible, and embedded with millions of sensor nerves. Scientists have been trying to replicate human skin for decades. B9Creations may have taken us a step further on the journey to create artificial skin.
The robot skin developed using B9Creations technology was designed to provide abilities beyond those of human skin. The goal is to improve prosthetics, healthcare, and even gaming. The robot skin has human-like sensing designed to advance human-machine interfaces, artificial intelligence, and wearables.
Researchers used 3D printing technology to create an adaptive robotic skin that possesses high sensitivity and wide bandwidth, as well as an enhanced pressure-sensing capability.
