Scientists Develop Real Spider-Man Suit
  • Want to know what being Spider-Man feels like? University of Illinois-Chicago scientists have developed a "Spidey Sense" suit with microphones on seven robotic arms that can pick up “ultrasonic reflections” from objects and warn the wearer where objects they can’t see are coming from. The effectiveness of the suit was put to a test when students were blindfolded and armed with cardboard ninja stars to throw at anyone they could sense approaching them. "Ninety five per cent of the time they were able to sense someone approaching and throw the star at them," UIC's Victor Mateevitsi told New Scientist. Mattevitsi will showcase the invention at the fourth Augmented Human International Conference in Stuttgart, Germany, on March 7.
