Electronic Skin Points the way North

No bulky gloves, no sophisticated camera systems -- just an ultra-thin golden foil on the middle finger. That's all the Dresden researchers need to control a virtual panda with the help of the Earth's magnetic field. When the hand swipes left, towards the magnetic north, the animal also moves in that direction (a). A swipe to the right, makes it go the opposite way (b). When the hand moves towards the middle, the panda moves back slightly towards the left (c).

While birds are able to naturally perceive the Earth's magnetic field and use it for orientation, humans have so far not come close to replicate this feat - at least, until now. Researchers at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) in Germany have developed an electronic skin (e-skin) with magnetosensitive
