Now this looks like something straight out of a "Mission: Impossible" movie. DARPA, the U.S. Defense Department's research and development agency, has developed a self-steering bullet that's capable of hitting a moving target. We've seen some mind-blowing inventions come from DARPA in the past, but this might be the craziest one yet.

EXACTO’s specially designed ammunition and real-time optical guidance system help track and direct projectiles to their targets by compensating for weather, wind, target movement and other factors that can impede successful hits.

The special rounds are being developed by DARPA’s Extreme Accuracy Tasked Ordnance (EXACTO) program. The program's goal is to develop new technologies that will help marksmen improve range and accuracy.
