Ace! We need a bit of this, IBM has applied for patent for Bionic Body Armour that makes you move out of the way when you're getting shot at Smile

IBM has filed a patent for "Bionic body armor" that could allow its wearer to actually dodge bullets.

According to the patent filing, the armor utilizes "a plurality of position sensors and a plurality of attitude sensors" to detect and monitor projectiles and calculate their paths. If a projectile is bound to hit the armor wearer, the armor administers a small shock to the appropriate muscles needed to move him away from its way.

The patent filing explains that " When a marksman (such as a sniper) is attempting to fire a projectile from a firearm, the marksman typically prefers to be as far away from the target as possible, thus giving him or her a head start for the escape after the firing. As an example, the longest reported sniper hit was from a distance of about 2500 meters, resulting in a time of flight of about 4 seconds for the projectile/bullet. Had the target been aware of the inbound projectile, avoiding it by simply walking away would have been possible."

All they need to do is next point you weapon at the enemy automatically so you can shoot back instantly. I guess this system would be a waste of time at short ranges.

I think they would need to have some way of determining if you were behind cover. It would be funny if you were safe behind a wall and you just started randomly twitching/break dancing to dodge bullets that couldn't hit you in the first place lol!
