Researcher makes a real-life 'Spidey Sense' suit2/23/2013
Though the real-life applications for blind and urban cyclists are tantalizing, computer science grad student Victor Mateevitsi's ultrasound proximity sensing suit (yeah, apparently that's a thing) is getting most of its attention for its genius "SpiderSense" name. Mateevitsi's suit uses seven ultrasound microphone modules to sense when the wearer is approaching an object (or an object is approaching them). The suit activates small, robotic arms to warn the wearer of the approaching object, whether it's a table corner or a costumed bad guy. Now if only someone would invent Batman's glider cape. [Source]
