Over the decades a great deal of technology developed for the military has found its way into the commercial market. From duct tape, to GPS, and even a little thing called the Internet, military tech has a way of influencing not just the lives soldiers but eventually society at large (because duct tape fixes everything!)
So what's next? What's being worked on today that will be the hottest technologies on the future? In honor of Memorial Day, we're talking a look at 10 of the coolest technologies currently being developed by the US military today. Most are connected to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the US government's big R&D agency, but in addition to saving lives on the battlefield, don't be surprised if you see some of these technologies in your daily life some time in the near future.
