Finger-shaped sensor enables more dexterous robots
Finger-shaped sensor enables more dexterous robots
MIT engineers develop a long, curved touch sensor that could enable a robot to grasp and manipulate objects in multiple ways. Imagine grasping a heavy object, like a pipe wrench, with one hand. You would likely grab the wrench using your entire fingers, not just your fingertips. Sensory receptors in your skin, which run along the entire length of each finger, would send information to your brain about the tool you are grasping.

Asteroid rocks may aid future space missions
For now, it's the origin of life scientists have been seeking. And while the pieces of a primordial asteroid collected from a NASA spacecraft and brought to Earth this week may hold the clue, they may lead to a bigger, more ambitious mission. Samples taken from the 4.5-billion-year-old Bennu asteroid could very well make it easier for astronauts to travel to and live on Mars and, perhaps, worlds beyond our solar system, according to a University of Miami Ph.D.
