NASA’s Advanced Supercomputing Division showed our tour group the hyperwall-2 with its quarter-billion pixel display measuring 23 x 10 feet. It’s the world’s highest-resolution scientific visualization environment.
It’s connected to 2.9 petaflops of compute via 65 miles of cabling (the world’s largest InfiniBand network).
Here’s a video I took of it in action. I used a 16mm lens on the Mark II to take the wide-angle perspective.
Here you see surface current speeds from a 3D ocean state model, with lateral storm waves and fluttering pockets of surface gravity waves.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
