40,000 PS3 Owners Saving the World

According to the most recent statistics for the folding@home project, nearly 40,000 unique PlayStation 3 units have linked up to donate processing power to the cause.

folding@home is a project based out of Stanford University, which utilizes the processing power of PS3s across the world to help in the data calculations scientists are using to research diseases such as cancer, Parkinson’s, cystic fibrosis, and Alzheimer’s.

This is a great development for the gaming industry, allowing the socially stigmatized group to actively participate in important worldwide scientific issues, andhopefully changing the way society looks at gamers in the process.
