Robots grasps "squishy."

"After training the PR2 by correlating haptic sensor data with adjectives from humans who touched the same objects, the robot was tested out on a series of objects that it had never experienced before to see whether it would be able to derive the same haptic adjectives as humans do. And it worked. As shown in the video above (although it flashes past pretty quickly at the end), humans described the folded satin pillowcase as "compact, compressible, deformable, smooth, and squishy," while the robot thought it was "compact, compressible, crinkly, smooth, and squishy.""
