[email protected] recognised by Guinness World Records

Sony Corp. has been officially recognised by the Guinness World Records this week for its facilitation of the [email protected] project.

Guinness has certified the project, which uses a combination of PS3 consoles and regular computers to help scientists study the effects of a process called “protein folding”,  as the world’s most powerful distributed computing system.

According to Sony, [email protected] recently surpassed the 1 petaflop milestone, while the well-known [email protected] project has topped out at only around 265 teraflops, or 265 trillion floating point operations a second

Although Stanford University created [email protected], Sony is excited because a vast majority of the [email protected] users come from the PlayStation 3. Over 600,000 PS3 owners to date have signed up to be a part of the project.

To add [email protected] on your up-to-date PS3s, simply go to “Network” and the go down to [email protected] in which case it will download and install.
