It is wonderful to see that the world of biology continues to offer insights to engineers. We've long been familiar with the use of countershading and disruptive patterns to make objects less conspicuous, but this is certainly taking the lessons from nature to the next level!

This is interesting how technology can be used for military camouflage. Nature teaches us so many things that if rightly mixed with technology can be used to develop the same defensive techniques that animals use. It will interesting to know more on design concepts, not sure if they would share it.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
