A safer option for force-on-force training, the StressVest system consists of a receiver vest that reacts to strikes from laser pulses. A transmitter reads these strikes, and sends signals to a training belt which records the hits, and can be configured to vibrate, or shock the wearer.

I’ve been waiting for somebody else to gunea-pig this system, but the Shock-knife they put out has been a great training tool.
