What is PS3GRID.NET?
The ps3grid.net project is a distributed computing initiative based on the use of the PlayStation3 for biomolecular simulations using a full-atom molecular dynamics code (CellMD) optimized to run on the Cell processor which is also the processor of the PS3.
With your PlayStation3, you can participate to scientific research by allowing your PS3 to run molecular simulations while not used for playing. If you like science and are happy to contribute to it, think that this technology could be disruptive for computational biology and also have important societal implications.
This is why your participation is very important because with our optmized software for the Cell processor your PS3 is equivalent to approximatevely 20 PCs. For example, if 100 people join this cooperative effort we will be able to use the equivalent of 1000 dual-core computers.

I hope they will be as succesfull as with folding.
