But until then, check out this awesome SpiderSense suit that grants you the seemingly superhuman ability to react from an attack -- while blindfolded!
Thanks to the great mind of Victor Mateevitsi, a University of Illinois at Chicago PhD graduate student, the SpiderSense suit was created.
The secret to the suit is a set of ultrasonic modules that contain sound transmitters and receptors. The body suit is also fitted with several small robotic arms positioned in various parts of the body, like the chest and limbs.

Mateevitsi tested out his technology by blindfolding one of his colleagues while wearing SpiderSense, and letting him throw cardboard ninja stars towards the direction of his attacker. What do you know? The test subject was accurate 95% of the time -- while blindfolded.
