Business Technology | August 24, 2012

The military develops new technology constantly. And some of their most recent innovations may impact life as we know it more then you may realize. Listed below are some remarkable things they have recently developed.

The laser gun

You probably never thought we would see the creation of the laser gun. It is the stuff of Star Wars and Star Trek, right? Wrong. The military has actually developed a laser gun that works and they it is known as the Excalibur.

The doctor is in – your body

DARPA is developing nanoparticles that fight infection and illness in the human body. This could revolutionize the medical industry and the program is moving quickly. They are already testing this nanotechnology on larger animals.

Thermal imaging on the cheap

The U.S. military has long relied on thermal imaging technology but this technology is far from cheap. That’s why DARPA is now creating its Low Cost Thermal Imager manufacturing program. This program, as its name suggests, is attempting to dramatically lower the cost of thermal imaging technology. DARPA would like to one day see thermal imaging machinery in cell phones, eyeglasses, drones, helmets, and rifle sights.
