"Okay. So you can imagine, maybe, a sort of resistive or capacitive sensor that will deflect a little bit and give you that information. How many of those you would need? You need, sort of, an array, right? So how large, like, let’s say this is the end of factor. I’m trying to see if you did that problem – you’re going to have a lot of information here, and you need to take it back, and you have a lot of wires; you have a matrix, and you’re going to have a lot of, basically, information to transmit. So, the design of tactile sensors being this problem of how we can put enough sensors, and how we can extract this information and take it back. So these guys came up with an interesting idea; here it is..."
