Pain is essential for survival. Skin is constantly monitoring for it and can trigger pain-avoiding actions automatically through reflexes.
Researchers have created an artificial skin that mimics this mechanism and reacts to pain stimuli.
@cnni what is the purpose of having artificial beings that feel simulated pain????????? why do scientists want to make robots mimic humans, when they should be used to better the situation for the planet in ways humans cannot?
@cnni why invest money in these kinds of research when the world is in a global climate crisis and we can’t even deal with the issues we already have. it’s fucked up
@cnni now make one with fibromyalgia and show it to those who refuse to believe in it
@cnni If only it would stop after the initial reaction to give us a better chance to focus and live...
