Robots-- Start your engines!

And they're off!

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) ponied up a cool mil for the first unmanned vehicle to navigate a 210 mile race from Barstow, California to Primm, Nevada... in under 10 hours. The actual path won't be announced until a few hours before the race.

CalTech, Carnegie Mellon University, and even a HIGH SCHOOL are in the running for the big bucks.
