+ - 14 Amazing DARPA Technologies On Tap->

Submitted by

gManZboy writes "DARPA draws a lot of attention for far-out research projects like the world's fastest robot and a plan to capture and recycle space junk--but electronics, communications, and IT have always been core to its mission. DARPA recently revealed it had successfully tested a camera with 1.4 gigapixel resolution. To achieve that resolution--the equivalent of 1,400 megapixels--the camera builds a panoramic image from more than 100 micro cameras. DARPA's newest development, called the Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System (CT2WS), blends mind and machine to help soldiers on the battlefield respond more quickly to deadly threats. It includes a 120-megapixel camera, radar, computers with cognitive visual-processing algorithms, and brainwave scanners worn by soldiers. Check out these and 12 other interesting DARPA technologies in the works."
