Need a lifelike skin for your android? Two Researchers at the Institute of Textiles and Clothing have published a paper describing a unique manikin they designed for measuring the thermal insulation and moisture vapour resistance of clothing. The manikin has a fabric skin below which tiny pores release moisture to simulate persperation. Further realism is achieved by circulating heated water underneath to maintain the skin at a temperature of 37 degrees C. A summary of the research is available in a UniSci news release or you can read the full research paper (PDF format) in Measurement Science and Technology Journal.
