According to BBC.com, US scientists have created a robotic sensor that they claim can ‘feel’ to the same degree of sensitivity as a human fingertip.
The team says the tactile sensor could, in the near future, aid minimally invasive surgical techniques by giving surgeons a sensation of touch.
To demonstrate the high sensitivity of the device, the scientists pressed a one cent coin against it, reported the Science journal.
The sensor revealed the wrinkles in President Lincoln’s clothing and the letters TY in liberty.
