A cool step back in time of the Atari Transputer Workstation with some 3D stuff running on it...

I have never seen the Atari Transputer Workstation in action, but I have heard of it beforehand. I think it had four CPU microprocessors in it. It was quite technologically advanced for its time. Now, we have microprocessors that have microprocessors in the form of cores. I wish that we could get more RISC-based desktop computers out on the market. I think that would be the cat's meow (no pun intended XD). That's my two cents. Thanks for letting me share. :)

I'd never heard of this.  Nice to learn something new about Atari.
