Genetic algorithm based aircraft combat AI, that beat a well experienced retired USAF, which apparently runs on a RaspberryPi (though not necessarily trained on one).

Wow, this guy was using a freon BB gun on a glider to gain practical air combat research by attacking birds, recording their maneuvering reactions. He uses this to build a foundation for research on multifunctional thrust vectoring and reversing nozzles for jet engines to improve fighter air combat capabilities. He later patented an advanced Spherical Convergent Flap Nozzle (SCFN) that unfortunately was too late for the F-15SMTD and F-22 development cycle.

Achieving the next level of economic growth rate will take more than a manufacturing revolution
Nice fusion of technologies being pursued by DARPA. The idea of a general manufacturing plant, complete with general purpose robot arm manipulators so the production line can be reconfigured quickly, a vehicle part design library called vehicleforge, and the META metalanguage for virtual vehicle prototyping has huge implications for modern manufacturing.
