IBM may have dropped out, but the University of Illinois still procured a  really fast (#3, sorta, goo.gl/zZ2tW)  computer via NSF cash.  Grand opening tomorrow (goo.gl/iwzUc) going to be streamed (goo.gl/2f1Mq) live.

+Sergey Brin Fun, but what about an autonomous Formula 1 car?
 
We spend a lot of time at Google trying to answer "What ifs?" What if you could find any info you need, the instant you need it? Google Search. What if you could view some of the world’s most renowned art online? The Art Project. And what if you built a self-driving car capable of navigating a track at speeds upwards of 200mph while surrounded by other cars? Our answer to that last one is Google Racing, a partnership with NASCAR to design and build autonomous stock cars. Find out more at google.com/racing.

click "try multitask", then move the video slider back and forward multiple times, letting go of the mouse button each time. I feel SO productive!
