Open Source Drone Design

DARPA is advertising for creative minds to create miniature drones. They're advertising globally.

“The government is looking for solutions beyond what they typically find from defense contractors,” said Matt Howard of Norwest Venture Partners in Menlo Park, California, one of the 25 venture capitalists currently working with DeVenCI. His recommendations include Sentilla, a company that helps data centers reduce energy use, and Avere, which provides data storage.
