Similar but also very different to the Ohio version. This is what we're now working on! See the initial design specs
(Click on the image on the right to see a larger version.)
Last week we came up with a first design of the whole Biomodd installation:
We’re currently contacting different woodcarvers (families) to see who would be interested and best suited to collaborate. This is coordinated by Vanni. As soon as we have the artist impressions, we can discuss things in more detail with them.
We can get private hardwood for free in Los Banos to incorporate in the woodwork (through Ding). There’s no intention to make the whole structure out of hardwood, just parts and details.
The platform can be built in the fully equipped workshop of Ding’s brother in Los Banos.
The steel interior structure will be most expensive.
An engineer will draw up a detailed design of the platform (Thalia, a friend of Diego and myself). The platform needs to be:
We need to make a selection of plants and start growing those in the Biomodd Lab:
We need to investigate whether it’s possible to create an active cooling system with plants (and evaporation/condensation), warm air good be blown away from the computers and guided to such a compartment.
Angelo needs to renew his visa in Manila that day. It will be open on Wednesday instead.
From Tuesdays to Sundays, Oblation Hall at UP Open University will be available for us to work on the installation and the UPOU guest house available for us to stay. During these days you are welcome to come to Los Banos and stay at the guest house. (It's very important for you to indicate that you're staying here because
we're getting charged for every night for every person that stays there is an upper limit to how many people can stay at any one time.)

The Biomodd sculpture will be built in part using about 15-20 functional PCs. The minimum requirements for those PCs are the following:
We would be happy accept either individual components or entire computers.
We also need other equipment, which we would be happy to merely borrow:
