Supercomputers from Legos and Raspberry Pi

Let this go down as one of the coolest father-son collaborations ever. Researchers at University of Southampton built a supercomputer consisting of 64 Raspberry Pi computers linked together and housed in a racking system built with Legos. The Lego racks were designed partially by Professor Simon Cox's son, James. The researchers have made the project available to anyone on the university's website.
