Paper thin, artificial skin created
March 6, 2016
Scientists have created sensitive, artificial skin out of household material like Post it paper, aluminum foil and pencil shavings. The paper thin skin has the ability to sense pressure, temperature, humidity, distance and air flow, and it responds to external stimuli.
The artificial skin is cheap and eco friendly and will find wide use in medicine. In countries like India, where skin donations are virtually unheard of, this method could prove invaluable for victims of fire accidents or acid attacks.
