This is the Lorica, a new suit of high-tech armor designed by the Australia based company Unified Weapons Master. The suit is packed with sensors so combatants can beat the shit out of each other with weapons without doing any serious damage. Weird, I thought doing damage was like, the point of fighting tournaments. Don’t stop till you can see the bone, that’s my motto.
It’s made from a blend of lightweight, flexible materials and comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a point-of-view camera, a microphone and 52 pressure sensors that send data to an external computer program.
The idea? To let martial artists compete at full speed with weapons in much the way bare-fisted fighters currently do in mixed-martial arts competitions such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The video links are seriously incredible
Can’t help but be impressed with this
Don’t downplay the smiles that come easy. The big laughs, the small smirks; sometimes in our world, the hardest thing to realize, is happiness. Have you taken time to connect with what makes you happy, just because IT MAKES YOU HAPPY? We are so busy, so go, run, now! That we feel the need to fill our lives with reasons to do something. Is “just because it makes you happy” a good enough reason for you? With anything - do you find yourself making “excuses” to do something, to ALLOW yourself the time? Do it for no reason, none at all, except for your own unapologetic happiness. You do deserve it. And time? What is time at all if we aren’t happy?
