Robotic Touch: U Researchers Develop Way To Print Bionic Skin

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Researchers at the University of Minnesota say they’ve developed a way to make “bionic skin,” technology that could allow robots to feel their environments and humans to wear sensory-enhancing devices directly on their fingertips.

The university announced the discovery Wednesday, adding that the research, led by mechanical engineering professor Michael McAlpine, will be published in the next issue of Advanced Materials.
