Done a quick search and can't find that it has been discussed here before

Looks very intriguing...

¿¿¿¿What's this intended for???? Interesting idea, but how it works? What can I do with it? Not much memory for multithreading/multiprocessing.

Well, it's an extremely powerful microcontroller with, essentially, 8 parallel , and up to 80MHz each, CPUs on the same chip, with a shared clock, various inter-CPU communication capabilities, shared memory and global availability of all I/O pins to all CPUs.

I suspect you all sorts of things can be done with it! Have you read the Nuts and Volts articles?
