Robotic Skin means more sensitive Robot Over-Lords. (Horray?)

For as long as I can remember, I have been told that robots had a very difficult time trying to discern how much pressure to apply to objects in order to safely handle them. Apparently, handling an egg without breaking it was a tremendously difficult task.

Not so much anymore. Some wizards over in Paris have apparently alleviated the problem somewhat by creating a synthetic skin that essentially provides tactile feedback. This means that when the Robot Apocalypse does come about, you will be able to experience, through your fingertips, how your prosthetic arm is applying just the right amount of pressure as it strangles you.

Progress is absolutely amazing.
