"Artificiial skin covering prosthetics and humanoid robots might look like the real thing, but grasp an artificial hand in yours and the difference is apparent," New Scientist reports. "Fake skin responds very differently to being touched, discovered John-John Cabibihan at the National University of Singapore and colleagues from Italy, Norway and France... Results showed that the two artificial materials, like real skin, can deform to closely match an outside force. The difference is that much more force is needed to achieve the same effect." Looks like its back to the drawing board for the Terrell Corporation.
