Here we show a tactile sensing for human-centered robotics. One is a multi-fingered hand system for telepresence based on the tactile information. The soft finger with the built-in compact tactile sensor is discussed from a biomimetic viewpoint. Another is a tactile enhancing tool that operates not only as a disturbance Alter, but also, supposedly, as a magnifier of surface undulation. A simple physics is utilized to generate the enhancing effect.
