DARPA will use crowd sourcing to come up with a new military vehicle. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has issued a design challenge with a $10,000 prize. The winner must produce a working concept vehicle capable of performing two missions. The Crowd-Derived, Combat-support Vehicle must function in reconnaissance and combat delivery and evacuation. DARPA wants service members, racing and auto enthusiasts to try their hand at designing a vehicle. But no prior experience is needed. .
