Skin that conducts electricity

A new rubber material has been developed by Japanese scientists that is able to flex but conduct electricity as well. The material can stretch as much as 38 percent before starting to loose its conductivity and conduct electricity 570 times more than a regular rubber. It can also be used to make flexible integrated circuits. This is a important development in making more humanlike robots, because these robots will need to have sensors located every part on their bodies. The new material is sure to find many more uses in our daily lives. For more, please visit the link below.
