Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO)

Was my post about the optical enhancement that allows sharp-shooters to fire from a football field away without physically looking at their target not scary enough for you? Fine, check out what DARPA is up to:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) specially designed guided bullets and real-time optical guidance system that track and direct projectiles to their targets, more than improving sniper effectiveness and enhance troop safety. The program recently conducted the first successful live-fire tests demonstrating in-flight guidance of .50-caliber bullets. Have a look at the site and the video for more information, but the sum total of it is simple: These bullets know where they’re going.

Sleep well, folks.
