Supercomputer Raspberry Pi
Just because the Raspberry Pi is small doesn't mean it's a toy, says Simon Cox, a computer engineer at the UK's University of Southampton. Cox and a team of engineers built a supercomputer by tying 64 Raspberry Pi systems together. Cox also enlisted the help of his 6-year-old, LEGO-obsessed son, who built the supercomputer's rack out of the plastic building blocks.
The University's computer cluster has a total of 64 processors and one terabyte of memory (care of 64 different 16GB SD cards, one for each Raspberry Pi), and uses ethernet switches to link the systems.
