SpiderSense Suit Grants You Spider-Man’s Abilities


We probably won’t be slinging webs today, but this specialized suit heightens your body’s sensitivity, allowing you to react or avoid even with your eyes closed.

The suit, called “SpiderSense” was developed by Victor Mateevitsi, a PhD graduate student from the Electronic Visualization Laboratory (EVL) of the University of Illinois at Chicago. The body suit is fitted with sets of robotic arms located at specific body parts, as well as sets of modules that contain ultrasonic transmitters and detectors.

How does it work? The transmitters send out high frequency waves into the environment. When these waves hit an object, such as an approaching person or attacker, these waves are reflected back to the suit, and received by the ultrasonic modules. As a result, the modules communicate with the robotic arms on the suit, putting pressure on the body parts that are nearest to the attacker. This allows the wearer of SpiderSense a means of reacting or avoiding, even without seeing the attacker.

How cool is that?
