"The United States' Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
routinely pops up with new inventions, many of which would impress
James Bond, but the inventions are typically shrouded in secrecy
and mystery until they arrive. After all, lots of them are intended

technology development models, including embracing open source
principles. This makes a lot of sense."
