When your friend texts "lol," how can you be sure they're really laughing at your joke? Well, here's one way to know for sure: a new phone accessory that you can tickle, which releases a laughing emoji afterward. That's weird on its own, but then there's this horrifying wrinkle: The phone case is made of artificial skin. Thankfully, the bizarre accessory isn't really a thing in stores, nor are there immediate plans for it to be. In the paper, made public today , the researchers dig into these so-called "Skin-On Interfaces" in four main ways: how to reproduce the look and feel of human skin; how gestures performed on skin can be used in the interfaces; how devices can recognize gestures input on the skin; and how others can reproduce the research. This is part of a bid to "increase interaction bandwidth," according to the study authors.

Researchers have developed a new interface that allows phones, wearables or computers to "feel" sensations such as tickling, caressing, twisting and even pinching just as the human skin does. The "Skin-On" interface, mimics human skin in appearance but also in sensing resolution. In the study, the researchers created a phone case, computer touch pad and smart watch to demonstrate how touch gestures on the Skin-On interface can convey expressive messages for computer mediated communication with humans or virtual characters. The researchers demonstrated that tickling the skin can generate a laughing emoji on a phone, while tapping it can create a surprised emoji.
Background: Alongside the prominent articles about impressive 'exits' and huge financing rounds, few articles feature early stage companies taking on major challenges in the marketing sector and raising funds, even if they have breakthrough technologies that provide a solution for genuine problems. Nanomedic, for example, has developed a unique, innovative and breakthrough product and was seeking ways to expose it. The company has developed a gun device called Spincare, which creates a layer of transient "artificial skin" onto wounds and burns, imitates the cell structure, and helps renew the skin. The artificial skin, serving as a sterilized top layer dressing, fully envelopes the wound throughout the whole recovery process, thus assisting in the renewal of the skin, with no need of dressing change until the wound is fully recovered.
