Because parallel programming is cool.

Parallella on Kickstarter
Kickstarter is a great thing - it allows projects which limited appeal to be succesfully financed, which helps them succeed. One such project is the Parallela. It is basically an ARM-based highly-NUMA computer with 16-64 cores which can be used both to teach parallel programming and actually do some useful work with very little electrical power. The numbers cited as on the on the order of 45 GFLOPS/watt for the maximum configuration. As the Kickstarter deadline is approaching, I think it is a good time to use this opportunity to call on all enthusiasts to help fund this cool project!
