I just knew all those movies with mad scientist were not just fiction. It turns out that the Department of Defense has a group of these scientist who's sole mission is to think up new ways of defending the United States of America. The group is called the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and these are some of the smartest minds in America.

Contrary to what former Vice President Al Gore thinks, DARPA is responsible for the creation of the Internet. And that little box in your car that prevents you from getting lost, yep, DARPA created the first GPS system too.

What those evil minds are thinking about today may be in your hands in the future.
