Video - Martial arts specialists raising funds for revolutionary new battle suit – a real life MORTAL KOMBAT
An Australian company has built a revolutionary new combat suit that allows wearers to bash each other with weapons in real-life bouts based on fighting computer games.
The ‘Lorica’ hi-tech armour contains scores of sensors that register hits during bouts – and deplete their HEALTH BAR.
Unified Weapons Master, the Sydney-based company, are trying to raise #45,000 through web donations to bring their next-generation fighting sport to life – that allows players to battle in full-contact fights without the fear of harm.
The polymer armour includes pressure and motion sensors that allows the computer software to differentiate between a light hit, that would remove some of the health bar, and complete ‘kill shots.’
