This soldier Robo-Suit Might Win The Next War.

DARPA is looking to tune up soldier suits. We know that the load related injuries are very common in combat for any soldier as they are always carrying more than 100 pounds of weights on their backs. So to make things lighter DARPA has created a new web suit called ‘Warrior Web’ and they hope

Future Robots That Will Change The Coming Wars

The time is not far when robots will replace human in battlefield. Brutal machines are being built so that they can last longer in fight and so that they can also sustain heavy fire. Recent war robots have been fitted with heavy firepower to destroy their enemies. As it seems now, robots seem to be

DARPA Produced Sonic Waves To Extinguish Fire

US Department of Defence’s famous agency “DARPA” (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has produced a sonic fire extinguisher. It is used to extinguish light fires, for example flames in contained areas such cockpits. The whole concept around which this device revolves is sound. Shown below is an experiment conducted by the DARPA team in which

7 Strange Robots the Pentagon is Developing

With a budget in excess of $600 billion, the pentagon is hard at work researching technology that is sometimes bizarre and out of this world. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency or DARPA is busy bringing in robotic creations to the pentagon that are craziest at the least. Here is a list of some of the

US Military Loses Contact With Hypersonic Aircraft

US military scientists on Thursday launched a hypersonic aircraft but the contact was lost with the experimental plane in its second test flight, officials said. The contact was lost exactly nine minutes after separating from the rocket. This unmanned aircraft is actually a prototype global bomber designed to travel at 20 times the speed of

Stanford robot car “Junior” in action, DARPA Urban Challenge

Yesterday, a Volkswagen Passat drove around a parking lot in Mountain View, CA, made three-point turns, and followed the rules at a four-way stop–all without human intervention. The computer-controlled car is named Junior, and it’s Stanford University’s official entry in the DARPA Urban Challenge, a race in which an autonomous car must navigate city streets,

Autonomous Vehicle Driving from Italy to China

The Russian policeman waved at the orange van zigzagging around the empty plaza, ordering it to stop. The van didn’t, so the officer stepped closer to address the driver. But there was no driver. The van is an autonomous vehicle developed at the University of Parma’s Artificial Vision and Intelligent Systems Laboratory, known as VisLab.

Japan Promises to Broadcast 2022 World Cup Live in 3D

When Germany hosted the 2006 World Cup, people flocked to public parks, arenas, and sporting stadiums worldwide to watch the games on massive screens at public viewing events. If Japan lands its bid for the 2022 Cup, you may be able to go to your local soccer stadium and view real-time 3D hologram displays of

DARPA’s “Transformer Flying Car” Program Takes-Off

DARPA didn’t reveal much at first about its “Transformer TX” program aimed at developing a flying car for the military. But now the full proposal has been published, and shows that the Pentagon agency hopes to get a prototype airborne by 2015. The mad scientists want a vertical-takeoff vehicle that handles like an off-road-capable SUV
