"Brain Flight" - it´s not just a game…
Maybe (for sure?) some of you heard about BOINC, SETI and others? That are [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distributed_computing]distributed computing[/url] projects. In short words: let your PC calculate something for a "project" you want to support, while it´s [i]idle[/i] anyway. But what, if there is a project where the computer can not help because only the human brain is able to support the [i]calculations[/i]? Then you need something like: [u]Active[/u] [i]distributed computing[/i] e.g. via a computer game. Thats what "Brain Flight" is. [quote][size=6][i]"[/i][/size] [size=2]Neuroscientists do not have it easy, because the brain is packed full of nerve cells. Their fibers criss-cross through the brain. Not even a computer can follow them on their way from one nerve cell to nerve cell two - amazingly only humans are able to. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Neurobiology in Martinsried near Munich have therefore developed a computer game in which everyone who desires, can do a small contribution to brain research.[/size][/quote] The game is not online yet! But sign up to [url=http://www.brainflight.org/]http://www.brainflight.org/[/url] - so we are one of the first [i]Pilots[/i].
I just signed up. :cheer:
Signed up… Looks interesing tho I do not know what they may find in my four remaining active brain cells.
Does not seem to be Opera (12) friendly though.
