Supercomputer Tianher-1A
Its name is Tianhe-1A, is located in Tianjin (China) and can execute 2.507 petaflops, that is equivalent to 2.507.000.000.000.000.000 floating point operations per second. Is, therefore, the computer that execute more operations with decimals per second, this doesn't implies that is the more fast in the world, as others say, but is the more fast making this kind of operations.

Cyborg insect
Not a lot of time ago are being developing cyborg insects. The main idea is quite simple, if the brain of the animals works with electrical impulses and the circuits too, instead of have to build a mechanical robot, we can use the bilogical hardware of the insect, connecting to it a chip in the brain, that will apply the appropiate electrical impulses to control it. Fill your mind with "Cyborg insects"

The demoscene is an underground community that is dedicated to the programming of artistic creations called "demos" that compete at the scener parties. The demos are a kind of animation with music where the major part of the graphics are generated at real time from the code programmed by their creators. If you want know more about this world, explained by someone that was inside of it, that it's to say myself, read the rest of the post. Don't stop reading the rest of "The Demoscene world"
