when is a playstation 3 not a playstation 3?

When apparently, it is being used as eyes for a robot. A Penguin-powered PS3 was to be used in DARPA (yes, it's that DARPA: the same boys and girls who built the Internet)'s latest urban challenge. The PS3, with it's Cell architecture, would help Axion Racing's computer to see the road. Yes, like what your eyes and brain do for you while driving. the challenge involves the mock transport of supplies by autonomous vehicles. the whole ps3-eyes is an interesting concept, don't you think?
