Each ZMS-05 SoC has dual ARM-926 cores with 48 programmable processor elements capable of 10 GFlops of processing power. The chip is able to re-program itself in real-time to suit the needs of the application being executed, and there's linux software to control the PEs.

First I saw the demo at www.ziilabs.com and thought it was a bit cheesy.
It got me interested though. Then I browsed youtube and found out a few no hype vids such as these:

If SDK is widely available then the Zii might propel quite a lot of innovative programming..

How does this differ from Sony's Cell Processor? I don't know much about hardware, but there is a SDK available by IBM that allows to program the SPE's on the Cell Processor for writing applications on the PS3 to do parallel processing and vector graphics programming, etc. What applications will this be used for exactly?
