Software is flexible, specialized hardware is extremely fast. Turn it into a computer chip?

From the creator of this project: Software is flexible, specialized hardware is extremely fast. So why not write software, then turn it into a computer chip? This is what Hastlayer (https://hastlayer.com/) does by transforming .NET software into FPGA-implemented logic circuits. The result is faster and uses less power while developers simply keep on writing software. You may …
