Tacocopter: One-click Taco Delivery in the SF Bay Area
This feels like something out of some cyberpunk novel. Fake website since it is still basically illegal to use UAV's for commercial work due to the FAA, for now, nevermind the difficulty involved. Domino's japan has an iPhone ordering app that grabs GPS coordinates so a pizza can be delivered to your exact location, so this is the next logical step in mobile apps/food delivery as well. If this kind of usage takes off, we are going to need to seriously discuss the issues surrounding collision avoidance and local airspace control, probably beyond something simple like transponders, more like AIS (vehicle ID,location, state vector, perhaps expected flightpath or destination). Also, you just know Dr. Claw must be involved with the Lobstercopter...

Revolutionary Communications System Promises New Generation of Untethered, Undersea Vehicles
200m range isn't much, but if you set up a mesh network of these near an underwater platform you could potentially do autonomous survey/monitoring runs. The other thought being dropping a long tether-like cable with these optical modems at 100m intervals with a small ROV at the bottom to drag around the end of the cable, operating like a mobile accesspoint for other ROV's and UUV's/AUV's. The military application would be a sonar buoy accesspoint connecting to a sonar module that drops below local thermoclines to see under them.

The Technology That Can Communicate Electronically Through Solid Steel - BAE Systems
BAe rigs up an acoustic information transfer system to cut the number of through-hull connectors on submarines, reducing the number of penetrations. Though I'm a little surprised they are using an acoustic system, as you would normally want to cut down on noise output, especially at anything with a sea interface. I guess the transmission power is sufficiently small enough not to go far. Couple this with a simple post shaped plug sticking out of the hull as part of an inductive power transfer system, and you could almost eliminate all through-hulls short of cooling water and waste related pipes.
