(Provo, Ut) Presenting educational material is one of the key purposes of the Transhuman House. Visitors can explore the Foundation Library and the Transhuman Collection or check out local research on the BioCell or on the AGI Laboratory but also see cybernetic implants, learn about VR in full emersion systems or check out the scientific instrument collection. You can even book a night on AirBnB. Recently a donation to the Transhuman House included an ‘Enigma 2’ device that is a simple encryption tool that can be used to teach and even in its existing form is reasonably strong. Given the critical nature of how blockchain and related encryption technologies affect our future, it’s important to learn the principals of encryption and this is a great visual tool you can learn that with.
Come check out the Transhuman House and schedule a tour today.

Besides the obvious phone app and IoT tie into to the Transhuman House technology MySmartBlinds are self-charging with solar strips, work with IoT hubs and Alexa and much more. Being able to time and manipulate how the windows transfer heat and passive solar energy into and out of the house helps in the AI-driven management of the Transhuman House.

One of the new displays that was set up at the new ‘Transhuman House 2.0’ is a South American Biotope. A “Biotope” is a complete ecosystem and in this case, it means no chemical filtration and replicates a bit of a real one. The object is to showcase closed ecosystems along with the aquaponics and hydroponics systems.
With the donation of a new 3 bedroom condo in Provo, the Transhuman House has moved to a new location that is bigger and better and as we are setting up, we hope to open the first week of dec. We also have a new Sponsor ‘Metric.Media’ that has supplied a new 86 inch interactive touch wall panel you can see us installing as well as other interactive screens.
This initial version of the house is about learning what works, whats new and bringing resources together, building experiences and otherwise move the various transhuman projects forward and the Foundation’s vision for the future. From local organizations such as the MTA or the New Vistas Communities, there is a lot we want to accomplish here. The image here is already grossly outdated and new features and modifications are always being added. Continue reading “360 View Tour – Version TR.01”
The Foundation Library at the Transhuman House is organized by collection, while some of those collections are not Transhuman specific there are two collections that are specific to transhumanists. The first is the Transhuman Collection and the other Transhumanist Fiction.
More than just a resource the Foundation Library has a number of important collections that are accessible at the Transhuman House. While the real purpose of the library is to preserve knowledge and that key facility is still kept private the public collections are here for educational purposes and to support related research both technical and cultural. The Key Collections at the Transhuman House are important as they related to Transhumanism and in Educating people on transhumanism and getting people to think about future.
