The mantis shrimp can impact another thing (life form, aquarium
glass) by hitting it with such speed that it shoots vapour bubbles
along with the claw, which cause a cavitation impact, even if the
claw misses the target.
Surely it cant be that difficult to learn to do that? As a human, we
have flexible and very configurable hands and arms, and it is
possible that it is possible to advertise lessons to learn to manipulate
the air around us such as to send cavitation bubbles of air through
the air, toward a target. It might prove that its not possible to do
that with our hands and fingers, but it might work with our mouths,
which are probably more idealer. Or any other similar bodily orifice.
