Jörg C. Gerlach has invented a revolutionary technique for regenerating skin after severe burns that uses the magic of stem cells to spray on new skin, just like you were using the heal brush in Photoshop. Video below, because it’s sort of nasty. But informative!
Leave it to the hippies at UC-Berkley to invent robotic skin to give robots the ability to feel. Nobody wants feeling robots… we just want robots that will vacuum our carpets and serve our meals and give us the occasional soulless handjob. But if you want your robots to have skin that responds to stimuli, I guess this is good news to you.
