Technology guru Ray Kurzweil offers a vision of future fighting machines.
One major development will be swarms of nano-engineered devices. Already, the US Department of Defense's Smart Dust project has prototypes that can reconnoitre. For example, millions of sensors can detect detailed movement of humans and machines in a large area. Ultimately they will be able to explore substantial terrains stealthily, perhaps looking for specific individuals. In a decade, they will be capable of performing offensive missions.
