Robots to have the sense of touch?

I didn't want to fill up Kevins blog entry with a fifth comment so decided to post this as a seperate entry, thought it was interesting considering what was covered in todays lecture:

An article in the Herald on a new kind of human like skin that give robots the sense of touch... wonder what senses will be available to them next?

i found this part of the article particularly interesting: "it will be possible in the near future to make an electronic skin that has functions that human skin lacks by integrating various sensors not only for pressure and temperature, but also for light, humidity, strain, or ultrasonic,"
