The Science of Spidey Sense? Arachnid-inspired Skin Sensor Enhances Human Touch

The visually aided tactile enhancement system, VATES, applied for precise motion control. The ultrathin highly sensitive crack-based sensor, signal acquisition circuit and real-time display system are used to realize the induction of tiny deformations. Ultrathin sensors exceed human skin sensitivity and do not disturb the human skin's tactile sensation. A real-time display can be used as a supplement to assist a person's tactile sensation.
