Electrical stimulation of muscles can turn a man into a superhero

Watching childhood movies about spider-man or Batman, would you become a superhero? To gain superhuman capabilities after a spider bite is unlikely to succeed, but to create a suit that is quicker than ordinary people, is quite real. A group of scientists from Japan and seem to be developing one of the components of this costume. They created a small sticker is able to teach a person instantly and accurately fire at objects moving at speeds over 100 kilometers per hour. How can so greatly enhance a person's reaction?

According to scientists, the average reaction time of a healthy person is around 250 milliseconds, or a quarter of a second. Some people may seem like a pretty short period of time, and human reactions can only envy. However, it's not as good as it seems. Due to the fact that the brain spends about 200 milliseconds to recognize the subject and 50 milliseconds to take action, people often can not quickly catch the falling pencil, and certainly not only one shot to get into a flying baseball.

How to improve the response?

To Reduce response time and make execution of actions snapshot with the camera and a small device that supplies at hand an electric discharge for muscle contraction. The essence of the technology is that a special camera detects a fast moving object faster than the human brain and instantly takes the electrical impulse to the muscles for action. People didn't seem that they somebody runs, the system had to slightly slow down the rate of reaction is increased only by 50 milliseconds, who previously spent on the action itself.

Using a combination of cameras and devices to feed the electric discharge, a person who participated in the experiment, was able to remove the camera flying out of the gun baseball. Subsequently, he was able to hit him by shooting a ball from the toy gun. This is a truly amazing result, considering that the speed of a baseball over 100 miles per hour.

It looks very cool, but a device to speed up the reaction of a man not yet ready to release for sale. The developers need to fix at least one problem — if a person, for example, at the last minute changed his mind to shoot the object, it will still make the shot because of instant electric discharge. Besides, if a system of recognition of objects will make a mistake and the camera man gets — he can be killed.

This technology can be especially needed in the military sphere to create soldiers with superhuman reaction. She also, and can make life easier for the disabled, allowing them to interact with objects as fast as healthy people.
