Apollo-NG is a mobile, self-sustainable, independent and highly-experimental Hackbase, focused on research, development and usage of next-generation open technology while visiting places without a resident, local Hackerspace and offering other Hackers the opportunity to work together on exciting projects and to share fun, food, tools & resources, knowledge, experience and inspiration.
Doing videos for LBRY is taking a toll on the current hardware. In order to streamline publishing of more actual videos, Blender rendering, other CPU/GPU intensive visualizations as well as training advanced Neural-Networks, a new and far more beefy Machine is needed.
While at it, we might just build it like a tank as well, completely from the ground up, with custom frames/cases, optimized for highest efficiency, environmental compatibility and lifetime endurance. This picture shows only the cooling part, with the pump/reservoir in the middle, left and right to it two radiators will take care of business.

Basic rigging and setup will follow soon.
