Description
"Together with Carnegie Mellon scientists, artificial intelligence researchers at Meta created a deformable plastic “skin” less than 3 mm thick.

ReSkin, as the technology is known, can detect forces down to 0.1 newtons from objects that are less than 1 mm in size.

This brings us one step closer to realistic virtual objects and physical interactions in the metaverse,” said Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg."
