US Air Force seeks 300 PS3s
Looks like gamers aren't the only ones that can make use of PlayStation 3s, as the US Air Force wants them too - 300 to be exact.
The Air Force is seeking 300 Sony 40 GB PlayStation 3 Game Consoles for their powerful cell processors.
"The Air Force Research Laboratory is conducting a technology assessment of certain cell processors. The processors in the Sony PlayStation 3 are the only brand on the market that utilizes the specific cell processor characteristics needed for this program at an acceptable cost."
Could the next generation of fighter jets be powered by the cell? Probably not, but if you happen to have 300 PS3s lying around, give the US Air Force a call, and make sure to tell them we sent you (come on free airplane!).
