Nano Air Vehicle
A nano air vehicle or NAV is a robotic device, usually autonomous or semi-autonomous, that is at most the size of a small bird. They scale down to the size of a dragonfly. This means that they can benefit directly from the flight of hummingbirds and dragonflies to tightly manoeuvre in small spaces.

The Media Vehicle, is a serious take on VR interfacing, however it is not a serious commercial device. The unit is, for lack of a better phrase, an ?art tool?. It exists to showcase what is currently possible in 2009, not as a device which expects a practical market.
The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland has created what is essentially, a scalable, modular road ice sensor network, designed to work with all types of heavy goods vehicle, and to communicate with any other technology also in place on the vehicle's data bus - drawing GPS data from other devices and interfacing with satelite navigation systems and in-cabin displays to warn the driver of approaching ice.
MULE is an American military unmanned ground vehicle, designed by Lockheed Martin. It is an artificial intelligence controlled combat support robot, albeit one that is larger than a humvee.
A new sensor, is able to differentiate true darkness from fog or smoke, for vehicle navigation. Even better, the developers have listened, and efforts to make it cheaply for all cars are well under way.
Embedding electronics directly into fabrics, and weaving intelligent clothing is quite possible these days. Thus, it is not a great step to envisage clothes which continuously monitor your vital signs, and relay that information to a computer system, also located about your person, or in your house or vehicle.
