World's First Soft, Flexible Touch Sensor For Robots

Shokkaku Cube is the world's first soft, flexible touch sensor. It has been designed to be used in robots and was developed by Touchence, a Tokyo University venture.

It has a soft foam covering and can detect changes in three dimensions. Because the sensor itself can change shape, it can recognize different types of touch interaction such as when it is pinched, pushed or rubbed.
