Human skin is an amazing barrier that is able to sense pressure and heal itself.

While previous attempts at producing  synthetic skins  have yielded materials that can only heal themselves under high heat or just one time, this latest material, like skin, can heal at room temperature an unlimited number of times. Additionally, the material can conduct electricity, an essential component lacking in previous synthetic skin materials.
