Hardware, Embedded Systems I've often wondered why computers - be it laptops or desktop - are so relatively monolithic. Wouldn't it make much more sense to have a whole cluster of very tiny individual computers, all with their own tiny processor, RAM, data storage, and serial ports, which power up when needed and are easily replaced when broken? Well, Liquidware thought so too, and came up with the Illuminato X Machina.

You have to be blind to not see the potential of this. Just imagine if these devices were smaller and more powerful, Forget dual-core or quad-core CPUs, this is desktop cluster
