Infrastructure Module

Compute Stations owned by different people are designed to operate together as a team to provide large scale backend computing to the Personal Consoles frontend interface running on their mobile phones.

The aim is an flexible design that turns as many as computing devices into compute stations as possible. Giving people access to computing hardware that they have PHYSICAL CONTROL of and sort out their computing efficiency later - giving data ownership back to the people is the priority.

Compute Stations are computing hardware design to be operated by ANYONE independent of their skill and wealth.

Compute Stations are well define computing devices for hosting Disposable Nodes.

There are currently 4 types of compute stations:

  1. Peripheral Station - sensors and actuators
  2. Mesh Station - network and storage
  3. Home Station - private compute
  4. Campus Station - shared compute


They allow you to distribute your information assets in locations that make the most sense.

1. Deployment

Although the 64-bit x86 computers are generally more powerful, an increasing number of ARM computers are also supported, as lower power and lower cost alternatives in a lot of use cases.

There are many ways to deploy Compute Stations, all you need is a physical or virtual machine that can run Ubuntu Server (20.04 or 22.04) - which means most computers on earth!

  1. Repurpose spare laptops or second hand desktop computers - Boot up using USB stick.
  2. Run inside existing Windows or macOS or Linux computers - Using Virtual Machines.
  3. Install on non Intel/AMD computers (from [Raspberry Pi to IBM Z Mainframe) - Using ISO Images.

Once you have got a newly installed Ubuntu Server online, you just need to download ONE publicly published script, run it and your Ubuntu will be come a Home Station. Yes, it is that simple.

2. Turnkey Systems

You can either build it yourself or have someone build it for you.

Zero Waste Computing

The idea behind zero waste computing


Our definition of Reduce includes:

  • Refuse


Our definition of reuse includes:

  • Repurpose
  • Repair
  • Upcycle

Millions dollars worth of computer equipment are thrown away or recycled each year.


Our definition of recycle includes:

  • Recovery e.g. burn as fuel for energy
  • Compost

Push Button Interface

Traditionally managing compute equipment requires a lot of technical skills, Compute Station has been designed to be deployed and maintained WITHOUT any specialised knowledge.

Once powered on it can be accessed and configured via WiFi through simple push button web page.
