Ultrasonic Spider-Sense



We would all love to have superpowers. But you probably don't want to expose yourself to toxic chemicals or radiation in order to get them. Fortunately, there are some abilities that we can closely approximate with a little technology.

For example, Spider-Man has a "spider sense" that alerts him to nearby danger, and Daredevil's "radar sense" lets him see nearby objects even in the dark. Using an ultrasonic range sensor we can sense how far away objects are. This would let you navigate in the dark or detect when someone is sneaking up behind you.
