Skin Conductance Response

Skin conductance response or SCR, is a type of limited sensory output that can be used to help detect changes in a participant?s emotional state, as an interface method for a virtual environment. The skin conductance response is essentially a change in the electrical resistance of the person?s skin that occurs a few milliseconds after the person has experienced an emotional state change, mentally. Currently, no method exists to determine which emotional state is now in charge.

PGR is also known as galvanic skin response, electrodermal response and psychogalvanic reflex. All four terms refer to the same thing.

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.
