It would seem that the likes of DARPA just cant get enough of tempting fate!
They’ve already created a computer system called Skynet, responsible for the control of Automated Flying Killbots, called Reapers, and now this.
Now, I know that doesn’t look like much but what it is, is the first step in the Pentagon’s quest to create Programmable Matter which, in theory, can transform itself into any shape.
They say that it could one day lead to “morphing aircraft and ground vehicles, uniforms that can alter themselves to be comfortable in any climate, and ’soft’ robots that flow like mercury through small openings to enter caves and bunker complexes.”
The project is five months into it’s second stage, and started with five teams from some of the world’s top science institutes; Harvard, Cornell and MIT.
Yeah, this isn’t gonna end badly…
