    A new sponge-like material, discovered by Monash researchers, could have diverse and valuable real-life applications. The new graphene-based cellular elastomer, or G-elastomer, is highly sensitive to pressure and vibrations and could be used to create soft, tactile robots to help care for elderly people, perform remote surgical procedures or build highly sensitive prosthetic hands.

    Now they giving robots senses. Nice.
