Researchers have developed a new soft robotic hand with numerous embedded fiber optic sensors and a new type of stretchable optical sensor. They believe incorporating the stretchable optical material into the hand could help provide more feedback.
Researchers have harnessed nature and biology to create a robotic finger that looks, feels and functions like a real finger.
Researchers report neurons in the PPC encode entire hand shapes. The findings are helping with the development of neuroprosthetic devices.
