Scientists at the Technion in Israel have used a new kind of synthetic polymer to develop a self-healing, flexible sensor that mimics the self-healing properties of human skin. Future applications could include the creation of self-healing ‘electronic skin’ and prosthetic limbs that allow wearers to ‘feel’ changes in their environments. Flexible sensors have been developed […]
