Nissan To Replicate Human Skin For Car Interiors
By Dorothy Tan, 29 Oct 2012
Japanese car maker Nissan has up the ante in the luxury car industry, by trying to create a synthetic material for its automobile interiors that would feel like the skin on a human finger.
Having concluded that the soft touch of a human hand is one of the most luxurious and pleasant sensory experiences, Nissan hopes to replicate its tactile feel—including its warmth, texture and moistness—with its cutting-edge artificial upholstery.
While feeling the touch of another human’s hand is generally an enjoyable experience, we wonder if having a ‘thousand fingers’ “touch” us while we sit in a car could be more-than-a-little creepy.
Would you want a car seat that feels like human skin?
