They believe this is the first multilayer membrane equipped with sensors that automatically rearranges itself during healing, said Christopher P. Cooper, a student at Stanford University and co-author of the study. The new skin resembles human skin almost to the point of sound.
This is a very important step in recreating the layers of human skin that reconfigure themselves during the healing process. The new materials detect temperature, mechanical and electrical changes in the environment, but they even recognize pressure
– Tell Christopher B Cooper.
In fact, they can heal themselves. The faux leather is soft and stretchy, said Sam Root, another co-author. When punctured or cut, each layer selectively heals. Just like real human skin – We can read Fox NewsYou.
One layer can sense pressure, another temperature, and a third the voltage
Root has been added.
The material itself healed within 24 hours at 70°C, and within about a week at room temperature. Another researcher added that by combining magnetic field-controlled navigation with induction heating, they could build reconfigurable robots that could change their shape and sense their deformation.
This makes the fake skin very similar to our own multi-layered skin.

The invention is not the latest development of artificial leather, the researchers have already published CNBCAccordingly, they created a new robot skin, with which robots can perceive better.
John Yannis Aloimonos, a professor in the University of Maryland’s Department of Computer Science, said at the time that artificial skin would allow robots to perceive their environment with more detail and subtlety. This not only helps them move around safely, but they can work better between people, and they can predict and thus avoid accidents. The sense of touch can also help robots sense a rise in temperature and the proximity of people.
Developing the sense of touch is important because it makes the robot more like a human and can bring it closer to us.
According to Aloe Vera, faux leather
It allows robots to perceive their environment in a more complex and sensitive way.
With the help of touch, we obtain more information about our environment, and adjust our actions accordingly, since we are constantly receiving feedback about what we touch and how we interact. The bigger goal is for robots to have the same capabilities as we do. Well, it’s getting close today.
