Organic Robotics creates robots with a sense of touch
For all of the progress made in the world of robotics, most robots are still a bit clunky.
Boston Dynamics is probably most well-known to the regular person nowadays. It’s the producer of the robot dogs and human that have already shown the ability to run, climb, jump, perform simple tasks and balance when kicked out of place in a number of viral videos. What those robots are not great at is understanding nuance through touch and being able to distinguish more delicate tasks. Enter Organic Robotics, a Luminate NY competitor which has developed a stretchable, pressure sensitive smart fabric that can give a sense of touch to a robot, dramatically improve augmented reality
experiences and help streamline motion capture.
