Comments on Guided Bullets By Exacto From DARPA
DARPA once again pushes the envelope in a way that was clearly foreseen in books and movies. (Read the complete story)

"I thought of some other examples of weapon systems that used different unique characteristics of victims. Compare the homer with the mechanical hound from Ray Bradbury's 1953 novel Fahrenheit 451 (used unique scent characteristics), the mechanical cobra from Roger Zelazny's 1967 novel Lord of Light (ised unique encephalogram pattern) and the slamhound from William Gibson's 1986 novel Count Zero (used pheromones and hair color)."

"I've never seen any credited link, but the Lawgiver guns in the Judge Dredd mythos (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lawgiver) appear closely modelled on those of the Sandmen in "Logan's Run" (similar user-coding and multi-function ammunition)."

"Gee what could go wrong besides ya know hitting other troops or maybe just maybe it comes back and hits u "
