About 8 weeks ago Raspberry Pi 40-Node Computing Cluster
http://adafru.it/b96190 

Check out this awesome supercomputer built with Raspberry Pi from Like Magic Appears.

In the practical sense, this is a supercomputer which has been scaled down to the point where the entire system is about as fast as a nice desktop system. Most of the resources available to individual nodes have been proportionally scaled. I believe this will make it an ideal testbed for distributed software.

My goals for this project were as follows:

Build a model supercomputer, which structurally mimics a modern supercomputer.
All hardware required for the cluster to operate is housed in a case no larger than a full tower.
Parts that are likely to fail should be easy to replace.
It should be space-efficient, energy-efficient, economically-efficient, and well-constructed.
Ideally, it should be visually pleasing.
I feel I have met these goals with my design…

The Father Of 3D Printing Is Being Inducted Into The National Inventors Hall Of Fame. From Techcrunch:

With all the hubbub surrounding 3D printing as of late, it’s easy to think of it as something new. Something that, before 5 or 6 years ago, only existed in Sci-Fi novels.

Surprise! 3D printing has actually been around for decades. In fact, the first kinda-sorta functional 3D printer prototype was built way back in 1984. This year, its inventor, Chuck Hull, is being inducted into the National Inventors Hall Of Fame.

This puts him up in the ranks, in the U.S. Patent Office’s eyes, with folks like Thomas Edison, Jobs/Woz, the Wright Brothers, Einstein, and Eli Whitney.

In 1984, Hull had a realization: if you pointed a highly focused UV light at a special, goopy material (called a “photopolymer” ), the material would instantly turn solid wherever
