Program looks to build military vehicle that can drive and fly...
DARPA, or the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is involved in a number of interesting projects, including robotic technology, and it looks like Ubuntu is playing an important role.
DARPA is sponsoring the development of humanoid robots, and Atlas is just one of them.
DARPA it seems, is not all weird gadgets and strange robotic machines capable of doing fantastic things. DARPA also has a darker side, utilizing pre-teen gamers to test military research through video gaming.
