Behind the scenes of Iron Man

A recent article in USA Today includes some behind-the-scene shots on the set of Iron Man.

The Grid: The Future is Here

  • 10,000 times faster than a typical broadband connection
  • Capable of downloading entire feature films in seconds
  • Able to transmit holographic images
  • Allow instant online games with hundreds of thousands of players
  • High-definition video telephony for the price of a local call

CERN, the particle physics center based in Geneva that created the web, has built The Grid, capable of the above and probably more.

Though it will be awhile (possibly a long while) before you would ever see this in your home, just imagine the possibilities.

"It has already been used to help design new drugs against malaria by analyzing 140m compounds, an undertaking that would have taken 420 years on a standard internet-linked PC."

Cool stuff.
