August 26 - Folding on PS3.

Sony announced that all PS3s spare power will be used for medical research into understanding how Alzheimers disease can be prevented along with several other high-risk diseases. This is another big boost for the project in which US scientists are trying to cure the disease, and comes just hours after it was announced that scientists had managed to restore the memories of mice with the disease. Click here to read the article. At Globa-Tech, we've decided to called Sony's folding project FOPS. It stands for 'Folding On PlayStation 3'. The PS3 folding project will work in a rather similar way to the very popular Folding@Home project. Ten-thousand PS3s harnessed together could calculate more than ten-thousand trillion calculations per second, meaning that there is a real chance that this could help work out complex calculations needed in drug creation. I'm personaly very excited by FOPS and can't wait to see it in action. I seriously believe that this could be the way forward.
