IBM Cell blade at CeBIT

IBM demonstrated a blade server using the nine-core Cell chip to display real-time, 3D video footage of a beating heart. The software allows a researcher to rotate the image of the heart and observe it from any angle, or filter out elements such as blood or certain tissue to give a transparent view into the center of the heart.

IBM is planning to launch the Cell blades commercially in the third quarter. Pricing isn't yet available.
