China’s Scientists Develop Self-Healing Hydrogel to Color Robotic Skin Complexions

(TodayOnline)  Until now, robotic scientists have problems giving life-like skin a non-white tone. this may well change with the invention of a new polymer by Chinese scientists. A team of mainland Chinese material researchers recently said they might have solved the problem of overly light robotic complexions with the creation of the world’s first self-healing hydrogel in colour.
These features showed “high promises” for different applications in biomedical engineering, including man-made muscle and skin, the authors said in their paper, published earlier this week. The team is led by Professor Zhao Yuanjin of the State Key Laboratory of Bioelectronics.
