Playstation 3 to take on incurable diseases

By Sheba     Mar 15, 2007 in Technology
Sony announced Thursday that the Playstation 3 video games consoles will be enhanced to take on research in diseases like, cancer, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other incurable diseases...
"PCs have been the only option for scientists, but now, they have a new, more powerful tool -- PS3."
A software update is expected to be made available by the end of March which will enable users to devote their consoles idle time to a Standford U, search for diseases caused by "misfolded" proteins. Diseases, like Mad Cow, Huntington's and others.
PlayStation 3 console software will let users click on a "Foldingàhome" icon on their television screens to have their machines devote their computing power to medical research whenever games aren't being played.
This sounds very interesting. I guess they're trying to find ways in which you can do more than just play games on the video game consoles now. Not a bad idea. It's about time we can use these gadgets for more than just playing games or other entertainment. Now it can be put to even better use.
