15743538 story Homebrew Cray-1 140 140 Posted by CmdrTaco on Tuesday August 31, 2010 @01:00PM from the when-i-was-a-child dept. egil writes "Chris Fenton built his own fully functional 1/10 scale Cray-1 supercomputer. True to the original, it includes the couch-seat, but is also binary compatible with the original. Instead of the power-hungry ECL technology, however, the scale model is built around a Xilinx Spartan-3E 1600 development board. All software is available if you want to build one for your own living room. The largest obstacle in the project is to find original software."
