Is it possible to make a Beowulf Custer with Arduino? Answered

Is it possible to make a small cluster computer using Arduinos? It has been done with Pi, but could it be made with breadboard Arduino?
I read about I2C and it seems viable. Anyone had tried it yet?
Awaiting some reply

Now there's the Yun and other even more "complete" Arduinos around, I was just looking at the prospects of using cluster systems, maybe not Beowolf, as it's not the only cluster system. If you're still interested in this I'll post when I have the time to actually work on it. I'm studying the search results at the moment, and don't have a lot of time, yet...

No. The Pi has an actual CPU while the Arduino is just a micro controller. Look up the difference.

Thanks for the answer.
A little disappointing though.
