Parallella "relaunch" at 6pm today on Kickstarter!

We will be doing a soft relaunch of the project video to show what our Parallella computer could do for non-programmers at 6pm today! If you like it, tell EVERYONE about it.

      I agree with Mark S. With 4K2K TV coming along, a number of apps would be suited with Parallella.
      Surely the viable response to date confirms the elegant design, and the product potential is very clear ,IMHO

      The Kickstarter intro video has been updated, it shows Parallela as a smartTV board that also by the way does parallel processing. Certainly appeals more to the masses but looses the parallel processing scientific side, surely there could be a better mid-ground. With less than 3 days to go it is pretty clear to me that these will not get funded, but I think with all the extra infor now available it could be relaunched with a $500,000 goal as a smartTV for the masses and high FLOPs for the sceientists and get a lot more backers and probably well exceed the $500K.

      If you guys don't get funded, what are you going to do with this board?

      So with Lexington time zone this would be now?

      I'm guessing since you're in Lexington you mean East Coast time, but you might want to make that clear. Also, what's the venue for this? Is it WebEx, Google+ Hangout, or something else? I checked the last few updates to see if any of them mentioned, but didn't see it.

      I'm thinking good places to post would be university alumni mailing lists and forums for video/computer games, linux, golfing, etc.
