Bionic Body Armor from IBM – for dodging bullets
IBM has filed for patent on technology that will heighten our reflexes so fast that we can actually dodge bullets. The present invention is for protection from projectiles fired from a firearm. The Bionic Body Armor would continuously scan the area for incoming projectiles. If any were detected, the system would deliver a shock to the muscles causing a swift, reflexive action away from the bullet.
I think this invention will be of great use for the soldiers who are on the battlefield. But I wonder if it can dodge tanks shells or rockets as well? Maybe that’s the next one in line!
