Gamers use PS3s to do biomedical research: PS3GRID

It's kind of like [email protected], but with PS3s instead of PCs and molecules instead of aliens. In the latest volunteer scientist program, called PS3GRID, anyone who owns a Sony PlayStation3 can donate their system´s downtime to compute enzymatic reactions and ion conductivity to help an international team of biomedical researchers.

More information is available at - see the first alternative source.

Is this like folding home because if it is i will stop with folding home and go with this due to the nice fancy look :P

they should provide money for every 1 or 5 hours of ps3 donations!!!
and they will see that they can get a lot of computing power!!
but after [email protected] i doubt i will help other projects unless they have a greater cause!!

I still cant believe SETI isnt involved with PS3 yet. Surely alot of console owners would like a bit of science fiction and love the chance to discover alien life.
