Kickstarter Project Offering A $99 Supercomputer

The guys behind the Parallella project only have 50 hours to raise $250k or their Kickstarter project will not be funded. For those of you not familiar with the Parallella project, take a peek at the video below. Thanks to vv111y for the heads up.

Inspired by great hardware communities like Raspberry Pi and Arduino, we see a critical need for a truly open, high-performance computing platform that will close the knowledge gap in parallel programming. The goal of the Parallella project is to democratize access to parallel computing. If we can pull this off, who knows what kind of breakthrough applications could arise? Maybe some of them will even change the world in some small but positive way.
