Unified Weapons Masters is running an Indiegogo kickstarter campaign to start a new full-contact fighting sport combining hand to hand and weapons fighting.
Intelligent body armor “The Lorica”, will protect the combatants and measure the force and potential impact of the blows dealt. The combatants look like they are straight out of a 3D Game. The Armour covers all areas of the fighter and includes a helmet that is is packed with a cooling system, biometric sensors, a helmet cam and a microphone. The bio-sensors monitor impacts and combined with a medical database, determine the exact location. speed and force of a hit and its impact to the fighter as if they were not wearing any Armour at all. In other words, it can calculate the kill shot.
A single Lorica helmet is worth around $25,000 Aussie dollars. At the time of writing the Unified Weapons Master has raised $52,677 of a target $100,000.
