Tactility

Jennifer's fingertips are long and slender. She can feel individual molecules with them, which helps when she is performing nanoassembly. Her fingertips can also do that. She can play the harp with precision and passion, read by running her hand along a page, and... well, you get the idea.

Oh, did I mention she's a robot? She is.

I don't mention her fingertips because I want to titillate. I'm weighing a decision, you see. Jennifer asked me to switch fingertips.

"I know this is corny," she said, "but I want to learn to be human, and from what I read, human fingertips are special for that. I'm sure you'd like robotic fingertips, and your brain would graft soon enough. What do you say?"

I think I have to say no, but not for the reasons you'd think.
