A university of Tokyo researcher has developed a human-like skin that covers a robotic hand and can provide the robot with a nearly human sense of touch. The skin has been developed from organic transistor-based electronic circuits embedded in a thin plastic film forming a net like matrix. The skin is flexible enough to sense pressure and temperature to an accuracy that can make them differentiate between objects.

Now this robotic hand project has been further extended to make a fully functional robotic arm that consists of an active vision with the parallel processing vision system called SPE-256. the arm can grasp a high speed visual feedback and can react in synchronization to the randomly moving target.
