PS3 Now Folds
The distributed computing project Folding@Home is taking advantage of Cell's raw power to help process the almost innumerable calculations needed to find a way to cure these diseases. It's a noble cause and an unexpected one to find a home on a video game console.
Users will be able to run a similar application on their PS3 called Cure@PS3 which will do roughly the same thing as the original. So when you're not playing games, you can help save lives! How's that for multi-functionality?
