Being nice to nerds can lead to some amazing discoveries in science and technology. It is one of the guiding principals at DARPA, the advanced projects agency of the US military. The agency, best known for promoting and supporting some  'out of the box' creative thinking, has helped develop technologies including 3D manufacturing, robotic hummingbirds, genetically modified plants producing vaccines, prosthetic arms controlled by thought, robots based on biomimicry, and the internet. Former DARPA director Regina Dugan discusses why the research office continue being 'nice to nerds'.
