http://www.linuxandlife.com – Joshua Kiepert, a PhD candidate from Boise University, has built an awesome 32-way cluster from Raspberry Pis. Although clusters from Pi's have been made before, and even much larger, this is still a seriously cool project. Keipert is currently doing a doctoral research, something related to data sharing system for wireless sensor networks. And he needs a cluster so he could simulate lots of distributed sensors. But the only available cluster in his university, a Xeon-powered one, is always in-demand, and its specs are also a little too much for what he needs. That's why he decided to build (Distributions)
