Researchers engineer novel material capable of 'thinking'

Summary by Ground News
Penn State researchers create mechanical integrated circuit materials from conductive and non-conductive rubber materials that sense and react to tactile input, such as force. Integrated circuits are scientists' realization of information processing similar to the brain's role in the human body. Material could use mechanical force to compute complex arithmetic, or detect radio frequencies to communicate specific light signals.

Researchers engineer novel material capable of 'thinking'

Someone taps your shoulder. The organized touch receptors in your skin send a message to your brain, which processes the information and directs you to look left, in the direction of the tap. Now, researchers have harnessed this processing of mechanical information and integrated it into engineered materials that 'think'.
