Augmented full-contact martial arts. A full body armor (for protection) that senses and scores contact by adversaries. This might fly.
Some notes from the inventors:
The UWM armor features technology that objectively measures the specific location and force of strikes to a competitor’s suit of armor.
Using medical research, including fracture profiling, software calculates and represents the actual damage that would have occurred to an unprotected competitor.
It then processes a result, similar to a video game, but based on real, full-contact martial arts weapons combat, all in real-time.
The armor has been designed to withstand high-impact strikes from real, but blunt, martial arts weapons.
Damage caused by hits accumulates until a competitor is virtually ‘knocked out’ or ‘killed’, with a strike or a series of strikes of sufficient force to render an unprotected competitor incapacitated.
Competitors can have multiple ‘lives’, just like in a video game, in order to prolong the duration of the bouts.http://nextbigfuture.com/2014/03/armed-martial-art-full-contact-training.html
