Creative Technology has released some of the facts about its secret Zii technology to those registered on its web-site. But while some facts are now in, the mystery about Zii and stemcell computing completely remains: the world still does not know what Zii actually is.

 

According to Creative, Zii is stem cell-like silicon that is able to “grow and multiply into different solutions and ecosystems”, which implies that the chip may be yet another massively parallel universal processor that can be used for audio, artificial intelligence, data, graphics, physics, video, etc, processing. The company said that it took a decade to develop Zii, it also cost over $1 billion and took 10 thousand man-years.

“The world is poised to experience a breakthrough that will better lives beyond our imagination. Even in the midst of these turbulent times, you will discover incredible recession-friendly business opportunities that enable you to thrive and prosper,” a statement by Creative Technology reads.

Creative promises that Zii stemcell computing technology may “change life” and will be first demonstrated at Consumer Electronics Show 2009 on the 8th of January.
