I agree with Jack, I'm surprised that so much of what used to be considered classified details will be made publicly available.

This is really an interesting application for crowd sourcing.  Since it is a public venture, we should be able to see a little more clearly if it works (as opposed to a private company trying it).  What is really surprising is that in the past a lot of what they are sending out to everybody would have been extremely classified for the people working on it.

I'm very interested to see how effective crowdsourcing design process will be on this project.  We all have heard how military budgets can have schedule delays and cost overruns, so I would like to see if this new design technique will have an impact in this area.

DARPA on the forefront of crowdsourcing design

Looks like DARPA continues to push the envelope in terms of leveraging crowdsourcing techniques to push combat vehicle design. The agency appeared to have enjoyed some pretty strong success teaming up with Local Motors on another combat vehicle, the XC2V, which was designed and built via the crowdsourcing approach in under six months. In fact, that project led President Obama to cite Local Motors' development approach as a model for American manufacturing innovation in a speech last summer.

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.
