Adaptive Skin

An adaptive skin is a means to create a natural looking organic skin over a polygonal model, the skin takes the underlying structure into consideration but does not follow it exactly rather employing other rules that dictate how it responds to the structure underneath, as it flows over it.

Adding Haptics to a Second Skin
Researchers have prototyped an electrotactile second skin to be worn over the first, which adds additional pressure sensation to the user's own sensory capabilities it makes the natural skin much more sensitive to touch.

Stretchable Tactile Sensors
Wouldn't it be marvellous if artificial pressure sensors could bend and flex like their organic counterparts? If synthetic skin could knead and twist like normal skin, but remain just as keen of sense? We are not there yet, but the first prototypes that can behave naturally under strain, are already here.

Prosthetic Monitors - and May Control - Blood Sugar Levels Without Breaking the Skin
German researchers have created an inexpensive to manufacture, tiny biosensor not much larger than a splinter. It is designed to pierce the skin and sit under the outer layers, monitoring swet and tears for glucose levels, and reporting back its findings, continuously.

Fast Adaptive Optics for 3D Medical Imaging
One of the greatest problems with tomography based medical scanners, is what happens when the patient moves (breathes, or pumps blood). The distortion that occurs in each slice has long been correctable, but takes a long time to correct. With near-instant correction now possible, real-time medical scanning is starting to look like a true possibility.

The AI Chasers
During the 2007 Singularity Summit in San Francisco, magazine The Futurist spoke with five of the leading voices in modern AI creation: MIT roboticist Rodney Brooks, Adaptive A.I. Inc. founder Peter Voss, Self-Aware Systems founder Steve Omohundro, Powerset CEO Barney Pell, and Google research director Peter Norvig. All were asked about the nearness of artificial general intelligence, and this is the combination of all five interviews.

Hearing with more than Just Ears
Industry News

It might well be that current experiments with binaural sound for VR 3D recreation of sounds based on the relative positions of the ears, and the head shape of the listener, are not quite getting the full picture of sound reception. It seems facial skin also has a part to play.
