Artificial skin brings robots closer to ‘touching’ human lives

Researchers develop low-cost artificial robotic skin with high-performance, vision-guided sensing, opening the doors to large-scale tactile sensing technology. Modern-day robots are often required to interact with humans intelligently and efficiently,…

A better pen-and-ink system for drawing flexible circuits

Conductive ink is a great tool for printing flexible electronic circuits on surfaces. But these inks can be costly, they do not work on some materials, and devices to apply…

Electronic skin has a strong future stretching ahead

A material that mimics human skin in strength, stretchability and sensitivity could be used to collect biological data in real time. Electronic skin, or e-skin, may play an important role…

More skin-like, electronic skin that can feel

What if we didn’t have skin? We would have no sense of touch, no detection of coldness or pain, leaving us inept to respond to any situation. The skin is…

Human skin is an important source of ammonia emissions

In many regions of the world, people now spend over 90 percent of their life in indoor environments. In our homes and offices, we are exposed to many…

'Flamenco dancing' molecule could lead to better-protecting sunscreen

A molecule that protects plants from overexposure to harmful sunlight thanks to its flamenco-style twist could form the basis for a new longer-lasting…

Skin patch could painlessly deliver vaccines, cancer medications in one minute

The researchers will present their findings today at the American Chemical Society (ACS) Fall 2019 National Meeting and Exposition. ACS, the world's largest…

Anti-fingerprint surfaces: Nanocoating prevents greasy smears

The shiny new refrigerator features an attractive stainless steel front. But it doesn’t take long before the door is covered in dark fingerprints that are…

Realistic exposure study supports the use of zinc oxide nanoparticle sunscreens

Zinc oxide (ZnO) has long been recognized as an effective sunscreen agent. However, there have been calls for sunscreens containing ZnO nanoparticles to be…

UNH researchers create a more effective hydrogel for healing wounds

Wound healing can be complex and challenging, especially when a patient has other health obstacles that seriously impede the process.
