A Tantalum Pentoxide (Ta2O5) based resistive nonvolatile memory device with bipolar switching behaviour was developed to demonstrate the new concept of memory in e-skin. The memory device showed stable switching behavior under preprogrammed voltage stimuli after an initial forming process. The memory cell was then integrated with a commercial tactile sensor with a new interface circuit, which enabled the switching of the memory cell through the electrical output from the sensor. This study provides a novel method for handling the transport and storage of large tactile data and will trigger advances towards memorable e-skin.
