Paper-thin e-skin responds to touch

26 July, 2013 by Sarah Yang

UC Berkeley researchers have created new electronic skin, or e-skin, that responds to touch by instantly lighting up. The more intense the pressure, the brighter the light it emits. In addition to giving robots a finer sense of touch, the engineers believe the new e-skin technology could also be used to create things like wallpapers that double as touch-screen displays and dashboard laminates that allow drivers to adjust electronic controls with the wave of a hand.
