Crop Circles by NVIDIA

Crop Circles by NVIDIA - RF CafeAliens sculpt crop circles with regularity on the country sides of England, so the appearance of this 310-foot pattern carved into a barley field in California left the locals wondering if ET and his gang were broadening their "hood" by tagging spots in the U.S. As it turns out, the spectacle of agricultural art was the handiwork of the NVIDIA company, done as a promotional scheme to draw (cut, actually) attention to their newest über video microprocessor chip. Sporting 192 processor cores, the Tegra K1 claims, "the chip would make for a tablet more powerful than an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 game console, while consuming one-twentieth the power." Those little depressions in the center of the IC are the Braille form of the number 192. GPS-equipped tractors are able to create patterns with amazing accuracy, but in this case the pattern was laid out and cut by hand. Clever, non?
