The Parallella Board?

I was wondering what people think of this board and the supercomputer that this guy built with them.

The Board:

https://www.parallella.org/board/

This guy built his own supercomputer with 8 of them (each with 18 cores) wrapped around a gigabit switch and a couple of Intel I3 NUCs.

Personal assistant robot

Hi all,

I have plans for a robot for a college project: in short, this is a personal assistant robot. It should be able to use Wolfram Alpha (just like Anna) to get information on spoken search terms (I.E. voice recognition) and output them using text-to-speech. This is all for now, as I want to have a working base that I can develop of my own accord.
