New project will build first sensory finger

Abstract:
One such project is NanoBioTact, due to start soon. Funded by the EU to the tune of €3 million, the multi-disciplinary group from academia and industry will look at developing a 'biomimetic finger' to bring closer the prospect of prosthetic hands that could provide the user with sensory feedback.

Working at the frontiers of knowledge in nanotechnology, neurology, robotics and materials science, the project partners will aim to design an articulated artificial finger that could be connected directly to the central nervous system to give the user a sense of touch.
