Raspberry Pi Supercomputer - This is why the Raspberry Pi is Sold Out

A team led by Professor Simon Cox at the University of Southampton built a super computer using 64 Raspberry Pi computers. The rig housing is made with Lego blocks. It doesn't get more geeked-out than this.

Professor Cox says “As soon as we were able to source sufficient Raspberry Pi computers we wanted to see if it was possible to link them together into a supercomputer. We installed and built all of the necessary software on the Pi starting from a standard Debian Wheezy system image and we have published a guide so you can build your own supercomputer.”

About the Iridis-Pi:

The racking was built using Lego with a design developed by Simon and James, who has also been testing the Raspberry Pi by programming it using free computer programming software Python and Scratch over the summer. The machine, named “Iridis-Pi” after the University’s Iridis supercomputer, runs off a single 13 Amp mains socket and uses MPI (Message Passing Interface) to communicate between nodes using Ethernet. The whole system cost under £2,500 (excluding switches) and has a total of 64 processors and 1Tb of memory (16Gb SD cards for each Raspberry Pi). 

To build your own Raspberry PI supercomputer follow these steps.
