How much do you value your brain? Hopefully enough to know not to fry it by trying to understand all the research, formulas, and theories behind the project to use 16 PS3's to simulate a collision of two black holes.
I remember seeing an article about this weeks ago, is this the same one again?
I think that had to do something about blackhole gravity or gravity forces and such. Either way, yes, the PS3 is being used for big time math science.
now, if only EA can use this power to make an actually game that run on par with it 360 counter part. Dam you EA, and your crappy ports.
They need to start making games on PS3 first, then porting to 360. That's how they did it with Burnout, worked great.
Two Xbox's put them side by side in a tv cabinet turn them on, let them heap's of junk overheat and then KafukinBoom !!
You can simulate an exposion of cataclysmic proportions that would blow a new ass in that Black Hole
They will, they did say at the start of the year that PS3 will be prominent platform this year. That will obviosuly coincide with their developments. And all otehr developers are sayign it's easier to develop on PS3 THEN port to 360.
There's a possibility that this simulation will un-knowingly create the first sentient machine, which will attempt to take over the world.
Just think about it.
ha you beat me to it...
bubbles for all of youse!
lol first i read it "stimulate", and i thought wow!, so much power!! but simulation is also ok i guess... ;)
can some mod please change it to "user only [HAS] 1 bubble"...that 'got' is driving me crazy...seriously...I am freaking out...
maybe they can simulate a game that cannot be done on any other system. It be cool if instead of simulating a black hole collision they could simulate a Freaking video game, and unified freinds list, Preferred players, in game messaging, in game chat, in game freind request, bios, instant messaging, in game music, in game mute and basically all of the in game features found on the xbox and then maybe build from there? W'sup big brains cant do that can you?
should stick to games. focus on games, not bluray, not saving the world from starvation, not surfing the net, and not trying to make sense of black freaking holes. What the!
you do know that these guys have nothing to do with the gaming industry. They're just using an aspect of it to figure out things relating to black holes. No ... it's not crucial gaming new but, it's kinda cool none the less.
It's not like major game developers stopped making games to do this stuff. A different group of people are using a device to do something different. Someone must have failed physics in high school...
So you're saying these scientists should stop focusing on researching black holes, and understanding the universe and other questions of merit, and should focus on video games. Maybe a little GTA action. How about some wii fit. Is that it?
What is our society coming to?
I love video games as much as the next guy, but one is definitely not as important as the other.
Black holes are damn cool and it'd be cool to see a simulation of this. Of course that's just my opinion.
I am all about stimulating some blackhole collisions mmmmmmm.....
sorry couldn't help myself there
oMg, OMG!!11!1, TeH CELLL!!1!1!1111one!1!11!
+1 to the Cell Broadband Engines' resume of Technological Advancements in both Video Games and Science.
Black Hole Collisions
it'll implode and create a miniature blackhole "suck in"
Its being reinstated time and time again.
Ps3 = Supercomputer
XBox360 = pffft
Yeah, seems about right. PS3 = computer that can run linux and movie player that contributes to curing cancer while it's idling. Now they just need to add a capability of playing good games to it, and it will be all set.
http://video.google.com/vid... ^ anyone who has some basic science knowledge and an interest in outer space phenomena should watch this. "Thunderbolt of The Gods" challenges modern gravitational theories and considers magnetism as the most powerful force in the universe.
yeah this is a great documentary... pretty crazy but intriguing stuff
great video, but there is something about this that was too one sided. They counter standard theory on many occasions but fail to give an explanation. Maybe i did miss something but it might explain some phenomenons but dont give any clues on the origins of astral objects. Maybe more physicists need to workd on that... I would prefer a more neutral video with opinions from both sides. That theory has potential but it seems to be vastly incomplete
doco's like that, really mind bending stuff......absolutely love it thanks mate! bubble fo you
That'll be nice to have...
But can it play games???? Kidding ;)
well maybe microsoft should use the power of the cell to solve the RROD mystery :S ....just sayin'
Nice One! DAMNED that was FUNNY!
even i play the 360, but that was funny
thanks, i needed that-roflmao
