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!

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Drop Test

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are already proving to be amongst the head turners of 2015. From favoring their inhouse Exynos 7 SoC over the Snapdragon 810 SoC (which ended up causing issues to its main rival); to ditching the removable battery and micro sd card slot in favor of a more "premium" device, the flagship duo have a lot going on for them at this stage. Regarding the premium redesign which replaced plastic with metal and glass,...
