DARPA Gets All 'Splinter Cell' On You

Remember in Splinter Cell when Sam Fisher fires sticky cameras from his gun and they do things like explode and gas enemies.

Well, DARPA wants to make that a reality (but probably not with explosives and poison).

The cameras are being developed by CDM Optics and are so tough they can survive drops from high-altitude aircraft or being fired from a shotgun.

They also come equipped with spikes for attaching to walls and can create a local camera network, which could be extremely useful for our armed forces and law enforcement.

The tech is reportedly "very cheap" and comes with "surprisingly good performance."
