Dodging bullets like Neo in The Matrix has been somewhat of a inner desire for all of mankind, amiright? The army would love to have superhuman-like abilities to dodge bullets without the need of a green screen. Imagine having the ultra-quick reflexes needed to become Dodgeball Champion!
IBM was recently awarded a patent that essentially would give us the ability to do all these things and much more. This body armor would continuously scan the area for incoming projectiles. If one is detected, the system would deliver a shock to the muscles causing a swift, reflexive action away from the bullet.
Although the patent focuses specifically on being able to dodge bullets, I have a vivid imagination. Ah… the endless possibilities.
