War as a Catalyst for Innovation

| No TrackBacks

One of the spin-offs from war is technology which leads to new products in the private sector. This is not a new phenomenon, simply the way it is.

For example, "a scientific method that has been used to track the source of illegal drugs, explosives, counterfeit bills and biological warfare agents may have some new uses: detecting rapidly growing cancers and studying obesity and eating disorders." See story >>

But this story stopped me in my tracks.

The future of war is R2RC - Robot to Robot Combat.

Are you ready for this?

The result? War becomes even more abstracted, more marketable, and more tempting.
