   supercomputer design using programmable logic components. If this is
   right, this might be another case of a garage inventor changing the
   computing paradigm. In the meantime, they are claiming incredible
   things from their demo computer: It is the worlds fastest computer
   (3-4x faster than IBM's Pacific Blue, and 10x faster than a Cray); it
   is fault-tolerant enough that you could shoot a bullet through it and
   it would keep on working; it will run any operating system
   out-of-the-box; and it is the size of a normal desktop computer and
   runs off household current. They call it HAL. ;) Check out the
   [3]press release, a [4]news story, and a more detailed description of
   the company and the technology [5]here. "
