Wearable technology gives user a ‘sixth sense’.
The suit developed at the University of Illinois allows the user to feel when something is approaching, through the use of a series of small 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.
According to a report from New Scientist, Mateevitsi has tested his creation on fellow students — blindfolding his subjects, he gave them a cardboard ninja star to throw at any approaching “enemies,” a test which produced a 95 percent hit rate. Less violent uses for the technology include deployment as a safety system for cyclists, allowing them to sense the approach of cars and other vehicles.
