One of a Terminator's most essential features is its human-like skin - it allows the hulking, steel killing machines to appear as hulking, fleshy people. Of course, we're a long way from creating anything like that (though with time travel, that's sort of irrelevant). Still, it's all about baby steps, and mimicking the sense of touch is a good first start, as researchers from both China and the United States are sure to tell you. Cue article... BBC Simulating the sense of touch? What a sensation! And hey, watch out, internet. Robots will finally know "that feel" you so often speak of. Anyway, I'm not going to pretend to understand all of the finer intricacies behind this mechanical marvel. It's easier to just use Frankenstein logic - Electricity is magic. Good enough for me! So, what should the official theme song for this development be? Stan Bush's "The Touch" seems like the obvious choice, but the Rocky Horror Picture Show's "Touch-a Touch-a Touch-a Touch Me" is quite a bit catchier. What do you think?
