Science Fiction...Think Again. The New Frontier of Technology in the 21st Century.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, otherwise known as Darpa, is a U.S. based defense agency that is making unprecedented technological breakthroughs on a daily basis, changing the way we view science. These changes will have major future political and geographical implications, effecting worldly events while bridging the gap between science-fiction and reality. Here are but a few of their gains.

[VIDEO] -- DARPA Legged Squad Support System

Today's dismounted warfighter can be saddled with more than 100 pounds of gear, resulting in physical strain, fatigue, and degraded performance. To help alleviate the impact of excess weight on troops, DARPA is developing a highly mobile, semi-autonomous four-legged robot, the Legged Squad Support System (LS3). LS3 includes onboard sensors to perceive obstacles in its environment and path-planning capabilities to avoid them.
