Yesterday’s post was a tad dramatic. But there’s one more thing I wanted to add. Self-steering bullets. These fit in the category crazy-scary technology (a bit like the swarm of quadrotors). These bullets will use tiny fins to steer themselves through the air toward a laser-illuminated target. Wild. The article is made extra interesting by the fantastic picture of one of these prototype bullets’ flight path:
I think Gary Oldman had a gun that fired self-steering bullets in The Fifth Element. I really hope he gets the Best Actor Oscar, he was amazing in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.
