Self-healing, Sensitive Skin for Robots

In an article posted today on Quartz, “Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder say they’ve developed the first fully rehealable and recyclable electronic skin, or e-skin. The technology mimics the functions and mechanical properties of human skin, capable of measuring pressure, temperature, and vibration.”

What new skills would you build for your Misty robot if your Misty robot had self-healing skin that could measure properties like pressure, temperature, and vibration? How would the addition of such skin to the robot improve the skills that you’ve already developed?
