March 24, Electronics360: Skin for robots that is flexible but coated with sensors is something that could revolutionize a number of industries, but the costs would be extreme.

Researchers from MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory may have found an answer by demonstrating 3-D printed, flexible electronics that combine sensors and processing circuitry and can act on their environments. The team built a device that responds to mechanical stresses by changing the colour of a spot on its surface.
