These two Japanese guys, K. Kamiyama and T. Kawakami, have developed a very cool new technology that they have called GelForce. I don't quite understand how it works, but the paper looks really pretty when you push on it. I want some magical gel! Look at some movies of the produt in action here ... very cool.
So I guess they want to use this technology on robots. The robots would, supposedly, have the gel stuff on their hand so they could sense pressure and respond to it in a human manner. I am so excited to see this thing in use!
