Skin On Interfaces

Researchers have developed artificial skin for interactive devices and OH GOD NO

I apologise in advance for what you are about to see.

You can blame researchers at Telecom Paris for developing this artificial skin (called Skin-On Interfaces), which responds to stroking, pinching, tapping, and… tickling. Apparently, it was created to give robots a synthetic skin, that could respond to touch, and everyone else nightmares.

I do see how this would be groundbreaking for human prosthesis, but what did that poor phone do to deserve this?

It comes in both simple and “ultrarealistic” versions – all horrifying.
