The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (“DARPA”) is one of the few tech programs left in the U.S. Fed Budget. This isn’t surprising. The history of technology is strongly associated with war.
So like, what are they up to?
DARPA thinks Moore’s law is moving too slow. They are funding research into new material science, new sensors, new transducers and Quantum engineered devices. Awesome! Check the details at Next Big Future.
DARPA has also announced funding into medicine on demand and portable synthetic biologically lab (tricorder) research.
Speaking of “lab on a chip” research. Did you see the latest cheap portable genetic sequencer device?
