Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. announced today that PS3s will soon be able to connect to Stanford University's Folding@home program, which will use the combined power of thousands of consoles to run simulations of protein folding.
These simulations may help researchers understand the causes of some diseases, like Alzheimer's, cystic fibrosis, Parkinson's, and numerous cancers. That's right: the PS3 may one day help cure cancer.
Wow, I new that the PS3 was revolutionary but to this extent? Wow, I am still trying to process this information. Who would have saw this coming. Well, then again, who new that gaming would beso incredible when the Atari 2000 was around. I bet everyone still thought that all gaming would be done on a cheap, 2D plane.
Well, there is one thing that is for sure, Microsoft and Nintendo will be shitting themselves right about now. I guess the sales of the PS3 will go up just because of this. You can add that to the list of why get a PS3 instead of a Wii or an xbox 360. The PS3 can save lives.
