Will artificial sensory neurons give future prosthetic devices and robots a subtle sense of touch?
We read a little about this before. It is amazing. Science Fiction is becoming reality and this is an awesome reality for many.
Researchers at Stanford University and Seoul National University have developed an artificial sensory nerve system that’s a step toward artificial skin for prosthetic limbs, restoring sensation to amputees, and giving robots human-like reflexes.*
Their rudimentary artificial nerve circuit integrates three previously developed components: a touch-pressure sensor, a flexible electronic neuron, and an artificial synaptic transistor modeled on human synapses.
