Now everyone can have Spider-Sense

If you thought that the tingling feeling, or “spider-sense,” that alerts Spiderman to threats was confined to the realm of comics, you might want to check out a new suit being created by a scientist in Chicago.
The suit exerts pressure on the individual, to alert him or her to an approaching object or person, reported the New Scientist.
The suit, called SpiderSense, is equipped with “small robotic arms,” according to the website, and offers almost 360 degrees of awareness.

Its Window-Washer Man to the rescue!

In heartwarming news, the window washers at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, dressed as Superman and Captain America to surprise the sick children there while they worked on the sides of the building. Then they came in for a meet-and-greet and all the kids had a great time and were able to forget about their illnesses for a little bit and maybe the world isn't the terrible place I always make it out to be, the end.
Hit the jump for one more shot followed by three others from a similar occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge the All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg, Florida, from earlier this month. A BONUS VIDEO TOO BECAUSE LET'S ALL FEEL GOOD TODAY.
