There's a shape-shifting military robot on the horizon, and it's name isn't Optimus Prime. The "Multi-Modal Vehicle Concept" designed by the Intelligent Systems, Robotics, and Cybernetics Unit at Sandia National Laboratory, is a drone that can fly, swim, or drive, according to Wired. In other words, it's a Transformer. The Multi-Modal Vehicle can...

Sandia National Laboratories' Project Neptune aims to design a system capable of sensing, from among the loud signals of a lot of gases, the weak signals from specific gases that are signs of nuclear proliferation. The researchers believe their gas correlation technique will prove ideal for a simple, inexpensive sensor to monitor those few illusive gases.
