It would be fun to setup a small render farm on a bunch of fast but cheap phones. There are several Linux options for Android devices, and most pro render engines have a Linux version. I'm guessing the various GPU based engines aren't compatible, though, just CPU.

it is possible. Some phones can run a GNU/Linux distro, I think the problem you would run into is being limited to wifi networking. Having too many devices on one network would slow it down.

I dig the pic of TORY II.

Not sure what it has to do with the article, but it's always nice to see some stuff that has to do with my favorite doomsday project.
