Researchers Develop Touch-Sensitive 'e-Skin'
Date:9/13/2010

To date, testing shows that the e-skin can maintain functionality even after 2000 bending cycles, the authors noted.

Javey and his colleagues hope that the innovation could eventually be developed to help restore a sense of touch to patients with prosthetic limbs.

This long-range goal, however, would require many more major technological advances in order to enable researchers to integrate e-skin sensors with an individual's nervous system.

Meanwhile, the team will continue its work, funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, to refine its electronic skin for a range of possible uses.

"It's a technique that can be potentially scaled up," post-doctoral fellow and study lead author Kuniharu Takei said in the release. "The limit now to the size of the e-skin we developed is the size of the processing tools we are using."
