Ok, now I got Your point. The project is all about being highly energy
efficient, flexible and provide massive parallelism (and we are not talking
about just 4 cores like in an Intel). Unfortunately size matters as well and
you'll guess it: it has to be cost efficient. Probably You know the word
"eierlegende Wollmilchsau" (dict.leo.org translates it with: "all-in-one
device suitable for every purpose" though the humor gets lost with that
translation), actually that's the goal.
