SpiderSense Suit Delivers Superhuman Perception 37

Zothecula writes "In the Spider-Man comics and movies, the famous hero's 'Spider Sense' warns him of incoming danger, which proves to be just as important a superpower as slinging webs and climbing walls. Now a group of researchers at the University of Illinois in Chicago may have found a way to replicate such superhuman perception that doesn't involve any radioactive spiders. Using a collection of sensors placed all over the body, the group has designed a 'SpiderSense' suit that detects objects in the environment and warns the wearer when anything gets too close."

    Technically speaking, not all human units come with this particular type of technology, and some have degraded or damaged systems. So those with a disabilities in this type of technological implementation might find these suits useful.

I have a theory that it's impossible to prove anything, but I can't prove it.
