Gone are the days when cell phones were the size of tablets.  And televisions?  They weighed as much as an average adult.  Today, technology is smaller, faster, and better than ever.  So what kind of computer covers 9,000 sq. ft. and weighs more than 40 tons?

The 14th fastest supercomputer in the world, of course.

Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio, debuted the fastest computer in the entire Department of Defense. Watch to find out how fast this supercomputer can work.  You might be surprised.
