This Robotic Skin Gives Robots Goosebumps & Spikes

😎 New DIY robot kits

Robots are already capable of expressing their emotions through their LED display. Cornell University engineers have come up with a new approach that involves using a soft robotic skin to give robots spikes and goosebumps. The spike texture unit has embedded haptic tips while the goosebump unit varies between bulges and dents.
