NASA Goddard Space Flight Center works on a sensor-embedded skin for robots.

The first robot skins are supposed to include more than 1,000 infrared sensors that would detect an object, and send the information to the robot software.
NASA Scientist Vladimir Lumelsky says: "Humans can survive without sight, but they can’t survive without tactile sensing. The skin is the biggest organ in our body. It's nothing more than a huge sensor."
More details on NASA. First seen on Science Daily.
