Robotics researchers at ETH Zurich have now developed a tactile sensor that could come in handy in just such an instance – and marks what they see as a significant step towards “robotic skin.” The sensor’s extremely simple design makes it inexpensive to produce, as the engineers point out. Essentially, it consists of an elastic silicone “skin” with colored plastic microbeads and a regular camera affixed to the underside.
