New Graphene Elastomer is more sensitive than human skin
Monash University researchers claimed to have discovered a new graphene-based material that is not only ultra-flexible, it is also extremely sensitive to pressure and vibrations.
The new sponge-like material called graphene elastomer is quite a breakthrough for technology, and could be used used to create soft, tactile robots to help care for elderly people, perform remote surgical procedures or build highly sensitive prosthetic hands. They actually claim that this new material is even more sensitive than human skin.
“This graphene elastomer is a flexible, ultra-light material which can detect pressures and vibrations across a broad bandwidth of frequencies.
