Engineers make artificial skin out of nanowires

At UC Berkeley, engineers have created a material out of semiconductor nanowires that is as touch sensitive as human skin. The so called “e-skin” is projected to be used in future robots to provide tactile feedback and perhaps even in prostheses to return a sense of touch to amputees. Because the inorganic single crystalline semiconductors making up the material are chemically stable, they have a promising future in medicine.
