DARPA sure doesn't seem to be lacking in ambition these days, funding invisible shields, bionic arms, and not one, but two different robot races. Now, it looks to be turning to its past for ideas, with it attempting to revisit its Arpanet glory days by issuing a call for "revolutionary ideas" to rework the current Internet, The Register reports. From the looks of it, DARPA thinks there's plenty of room for improvement, stating the goal of the program as nothing less than to "improve transfer speeds, network routing efficiency, reliability, simplify network configuration, and reduce cost," adding that it's also interested in new addressing schemes to supplement the current IP scheme. Those interested in taking a shot at it can hit up the link below for all the necessary information.
