Soft e-skin that communicates with the brain

Posted by in category: neuroscience

Researchers at Stanford University have developed digital skin that can convert sensations such as heat and pressure to electrical signals that can be read by electrodes implanted in the human brain.

Although such capability was developed years earlier, the components required at that time to convert digital signals were rigid and unwieldy.

This new is soft as, well, skin. The conversion elements are seamlessly incorporated within the skin, which measures a few tens of nanometers thick.
