Raspberry Pi Supercomputing Cluster!

The Raspberry Pi is an interesting little device. Designed to be a learning and education tool, it has a fairly large community and a loyal following due to its simple design and low price point. Now, thanks to some researchers at the University of Southampton, 64 Raspberry Pi’s have been coupled together with cables and Legos to form the perfect small scale computing cluster.

That’s right, Legos. Those little building blocks that have captured many a child’s heart and Raspberry Pi’s (which have captured many of those same children’s adult hearts) have been combined into a networked computing cluster. While the exact use for the devise has yet to be revealed to the general public, the coolness factor alone is off the charts.

Making things even better is the fact that the university has decided to release a guide on how to build your own. Of course, if you’re interested in more than just building your own, head on over to the university’s website for the rest of the details, and give this beast a look.

And if any forum members decide to build their own, bigger version of this, definitely let us know!
