Cabe, that sounds like an interesting combination. Maybe you should try writing to Georgia Tech and making that suggestion?

mrdon, HMI is an interesting application idea. BTW, I think a.saji meant that new technologies that can be applied to robotics are happening very quickly right now.

I wonder if this could be coupled with Georgia Institute of Technology's sensor device that converts mechanical pressure into light for ultra-sensitivity akin to human skin. https://www.gatech.edu/newsroom/release.html?nid=228141
