Researchers at MIT and Northeastern University are showing off a new fingertip version of the GelSight sensor, that uses a camera and a sensitive rubber film to 3D map the objects they’re grabbing.
They say it can give them 100 times more sensitivity then current iterations and is more sensible than human’s…

Advancements non stop guys!!! 🙂

Check the video.
