Artificial Skin Feels the Heat
A team of engineers and researchers at Caltech and ETH Zurich say they have developed an artificial skin capable of detecting temperature changes using a mechanism similar to the one used by the organ that allows pit vipers to sense their prey. The material could be grafted onto prosthetic limbs to restore temperature sensing in amputees, according to the scientists, who added that it could also be applied to first-aid bandages to alert health professionals of a temperature increase, a sign of infection, in wounds…
Researchers Create An Artificial Skin That Can Sense Changes In Temperature

A Life-Saving Discovery at MIT MechE
A “failed experiment” became a life-saving discovery by MIT Professor Ioannis V. Yannas and his colleague Dr. John Burke when their search for a better way to treat severe burn victims led to the discovery of organ regeneration…
