The Parallel Ball Run
At CeBIT 2016, emmtrix Technologies presented in cooperation with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) the emmtrix Multicore Coaster. The Multicore Coaster is a ball run that demonstrates and visualizes the complexity of parallel programming. It consists of four parallel rails that represent four cores of a quad-core processor. It shows the complexity of following the individual balls through the whole sculpture. Software developers face the same complexity when programming multicore processors.
- 4 parallel rails
- 16 actors / stoppers for stopping balls
- 16 light barriers
- 1 magnetic ball elevator
- 1 Raspberry Pi 2
- 1 touch screen
