Great algorithms for the formation flight. We actually worked on vehicles like those the size of a bumble-bee, even using the bumble-bee wing rotation motion.
Some great strides being made in miniaturization.
Sandia National Lab recently developed a precision guided round for the .50 caliber machine gun and sniper round. Has to take quite a few "g"s as it accelerates from 0 to 3000+ fps (~mach 3, SR-71 speed) in about two feet.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
