Mechanical sensing, like touch, is mediated by biomechanics. This means that, at first, mechanical stimuli are morphologically computed. In our paper, we select and review cases of specialized sensory organs for mechanical sensing—from both the animal and plant kingdoms—that distribute their intelligence in both structure and materials. Following a biomimetic approach, examples of artificial sensors that implement these principles are provided, and ways in which they can be artificially translated are suggested. View this paper.
