Artificial Skin Feels With Nerves Made of Clear Nanotube Springs | Popular Science: Lipomi and colleagues in Zhenan Bao’s skin lab used nanotubes suspended in liquid, spraying them onto a silicone surface and then stretching the silicone...
The sensors are made from two nanotube-coated silicone pieces, sandwiching a third layer of deformable silicone that stores an electrical charge. When pressure is applied, the device’s capacitance increases, and this can be used to calculate the amount of pressure. It’s not quite as sensitive as another super-sensitive skin developed in the same lab last year, because the researchers were focused on making this one transparent.
