Agreed, the 3 little pigs idea would make a great MythBusters episode!

Is some one is going to manufacture this item based on these information?

How about "The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs" (gotta love that Aesop). A little biology mixed with heavy duty alchemy? To boot, isn't this story what Silicon Valley is all about - ok maybe I'm being a little cynical. Love the 3 little pigs idea - sounds like great fodder for MythBusters!

Cool, let's move to Rapunzel's hair, that's a baffling one.

1. That is AWESOME! This provides a whole other dimension to finding the rightful owner of the glass slipper. 2. I think there should be a whole series of engineering fairy tales! 3. You should start with the 3 little pigs (how much force it takes to knock down the various houses or something)

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
