Although used for many other industries, Oak Ridge National Laboratory has discovered a way to create a robotic sense of touch through its fibers using carbon nanotubes.

Mimicking nerve pathways, carbon nanotubes map out a more complex system of touch for potential prosthetic developments. Although such discoveries can help many disabled individuals across the globe, I wonder what it might entail for purely robotic experiments?
