SpiderSense ultrasound suit gives wearers a sixth sense
New wearable technology under development at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) offers users a sixth sense, allowing them to feel when objects are approaching their bodies. Dubbed SpiderSense after Spider-Man’s famous superpower, the suit is the work of UIC PhD student Victor Mateevitsi and functions through the use of a series of small, directional ultrasound microphones. When a microphone module detects movement, it triggers a corresponding robotic arm, exerting a small amount of pressure on the relevant area of the wearer’s body.
