    MQ9 Reaper

    Interesting article at Discover Magazine online about future military technology like lasers, mind-reading binoculars, etc.

    Mind-reading binocs?
    This year DARPA started a project called the Cognitive Technology Threat Warning System—more catchily dubbed Luke’s Binoculars (a reference to Luke Skywalker from Star Wars)—that combines advanced optics with an EEG system that monitors brain wave activity in the prefrontal cortex. Certain patterns of activity suggest that the brain has subconsciously detected a threat, and the system will alert the soldier immediately instead of waiting for his conscious mind to finish digesting the entire scene. DARPA anticipates field-testing a prototype in 2010.
    All questions are valid, all answers are tentative.
