Scientists Build 1,000 Core Processor, Claim It's 20 Times Faster Than Current Models~

Scottish scientists have built a 1,000-core processor, claiming it will run 20 times faster than today’s chips while using less power.

Dr. Wim Vanderbauwhede led a research team at the University of Glasgow to create the futuristic processor using a programmable chip called a field programmable gate array (FPGA)~

Instead of the built-in circuitry of conventional desktop computer chips, these processors can be customized. So with some extremely clever programming, the research team was able to divide the processor into 1,000 cores, each capable of its own computation~

To give you some perspective, the fastest consumer processors such as Intel’s Core i7 top out at six cores. According to the Daily Mail, the 1,000-core processor processes 5 gigabytes data per second, and that’s “20 times faster than modern computers.”~

Iron Man ode to Grey Fox~

The Hot Toys 10th Anniversary Exhibition took place over the last few days in Tokyo. One attraction of the show was customized Iron Man figures. Influences ranged from Bruce Lee to NASA astronauts, but the showstopper was an ode to Grey Fox (AKA Cyborg Ninja [AKA Frank Jaeger]) of Metal Gear fame. Who would win in a fight between Iron Man and Grey Fox? I guess it comes down to jets and hand cannons versus optical camouflage and an electrified katana~

Pizza Dough Acrobat~

The CollegeHumor/IAC crowd got a special dough-tossing show by Ninio Coniglio at the Pizzeria Del Corso in Brooklyn. If he drops it on the floor, does he still continue making the pizza with the same dough?~

Whatever You Do, Do NOT Add A Magic Hat: : Jabba The Snowman

Based on everything else in the picture, I'm guessing this photo's about 40 years old. Except -- EXCEPT -- Star Wars wasn't even a sperm in George Lucas's ballsack back then~

Pink Sweets & Muchi Muchi Pork out 2/24/11 (in Japan)~

Those Japanese bastards. They get the robot servants and all the good games. Cave’s Xbox 360 double-pack of two bullet-hell arcade ports will be hitting shelves around the Land of the Rising Sun on February 24, 2011~

Muchi Muchi Pork is awesome because it features well-endowed girls in pig suits riding flying motorcycles. Pink Sweets is awesome because it is so damn difficult that it might just kill you in real life. Watch the strangely extensive announcement above for some gameplay footage of both games~

I wouldn’t expect this to be a region-free release, but there’s always room for wishful thinking… or for stealing $300 from an old lady so I can finally buy a Japanese 360. She deserved it anyway~

SEGA's Urine-Controlled Video Games~

Dubbed "Toirettsu" (トイレッツ), the game's title is a word play on "toy", "let's" and "toilets". As the Sega Toys website points out, "You're able to game with pee!"~

The contraption is outfitted with mini-games, and there is a sensor that can apparently measure the speed of one's urine stream. Some of the mini-games include erasing graffiti with a hose...causing wind to blow under a women's skirt...and...shoot milk from their nose~

Definitely The Droids You Were Looking For~

Australian company Black Milk has fashioned a C-3PO swimsuit. It’s not quite as iconic as the “Artoo” — probably because C-3PO’s body pattern isn’t as iconic as R2’s — but the Black Milk people sure know how to do fan service~

Pepsi Nex Christmas CM Featuring Hikaru Utada~

She is singing “Can’t Wait ‘Til Christmas” that can be found on her compilation album “Utada Hikaru Single Collection Vol. 2″ that was just released last month~

Its a pity that she would be going on hiatus soon for a couple of years. I hope she will get to do all the things she wanted to do and then come back fully recharged to sing more wonderful songs~

High-speed camera shooting FROM a train~

Graeme Taylor shot out the window of a train at 210 frames per second, reversing the usual trick of shooting and slowing down a high-speed object from a stationary spot; rather, he shot a stationary spot from a high-speed object. The effect is something like a mundane bullet-time, where the world has stopped so that no one can do anything much of anything. It's mesmerizing~

"The 'trick' is the camera collects images at a rate of 210 per second - but the film is played back at 30 frames per second."~

The Air Force's PlayStation 3 supercomputer~

What happens when you stack up and string together 1,760 PlayStation 3s together? You get the Defense Department's fastest interactive computer, the 33rd biggest computer in the world, that's what~

Yes, the Air Force's crazy PS3 computer consists of all those gaming consoles, stripped of their Blu-ray functionality, connected to 168 seperate graphical processing units and 84 coordinating servers. It's used "for things like research into AI, fast processing of satellite pictures and the enhancement of radar." And you thought just being able to play Uncharted 2 was cool~
