Global Guerrillas has had a series of posts on BattleSwarms and other military technological developments including self-guided bullets. I suppose it will not be long before we see bullets behaving like this.
Global Guerillas author, John Robb, flagged BattleSwarms here in 2004. He is a profound thinker whose ideas I do not come across elsewhere. Robb’s book,
Brave New War: The Next Stage of Terrorism and the End of Globalization is well worth checking out.
Make sure you watch the video of the battle swarm, it sent shivers up my spine and spurred this post.
