BASIC Stamp Supercomputer

„My Supercomputer! I got the idea to make a supercomputer at the hobby level to demonstrate the concept. It beats out the worlds fastest supercomputer in ten categories!

* Smaller
* Lighter
* Portable
* Field Operable
* Runs on Batteries
* Has the Greatest Number of (I/O)
* Has the greatest Number of Sensors/Variety
* Lowest Power Consumption
* Lowest Unit Cost
* Easiest to Program

It’s a simple hobby project using 11 Parallax Basic Stamp microcontrollers (12 by the time you read this). These „computers“ are connected together for hardware/software clustered parallel processing. It’s a fantastic learning tool and can control 176 peripherals/sensors. One application is for the more rapid development of robotic sensors and software.“
