A simple little processor, named Crusoe, running at low voltage and having a couple orders of magnitude fewer transistors than intel's latest. It's cool because around that processor is a software wrapper then interprets instructions meant for a x86 processor into Crusoe speak. The result is a processor whose instruction set can be upgraded, which draws little power (since it requires no fan), and could emulate any chip out there (if someone wants to write the wrapper). Pretty bitchin. If it ever comes out :)
