This week's Aviation Week has a wicked cool article on tiny flying machines. They talk about these little guys that easily fit in the palm of one's hand, and carry tiny cameras to observe one's battlefield adversary. Think of the cool games we could play with some of those!

The coolest part was a tiny silicon turbine. The rotor is 4 mm diameter. And spins at over half a million (!) RPM. kewwwallllllll. spike
