DARPATech 2007: Research So Crazy It Just Might Work

In case you didn’t know it, DARPA, the US DoD‘s agency that funds and guides the development of new technologies for the military, has an annual conference where they get the researchers, military brass and contractors together for a few days to talk about what’s going on and what’s next. DARPATech 2007 was just held this week, and a couple of folks from Wired News went down to blog the event.
