Parallella is a single-board computer roughly the size of a credit card or Raspberry Pi. Parallella runs Linux. It has 18 cores (2 ARM, 16 RISC) and you can buy it online for about $150. This presentation tells why we care about parallelism and briefly shows how parallel execution differs from serial.
