I’m sure many of us will remember that iconic quote in Steve Martin’s 1995 film Sgt. Bilko, after their hovertank made a rather awkward public appearance, ‘hitting’ the wrong target:
“Well if you remember Einstein’s theory, sir; space is curved? And these are smart weapons…”
However, while Sgt. Bilko was lying about this technology existing, DARPA isn’t. Today, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), released its first video of its new smart bullet technology called EXACTO (which stands for Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordinance). As the above movie quote might suggest, this technology is very smart and allows bullets to change their trajectory to hit a predetermined target. Check out the aforementioned video below:
