Flexible electronics: Hairy sensors

Flexible strain-gauge sensors, which could eventually be used in electronic skin, generally require complex device architectures. A simple and highly sensitive resistive sensor for the detection of pressure, shear and torsion with discernible strain-gauge factors has now been fabricated using two interlocked arrays of platinum-coated polymer nanofibres.
