At the Transhuman House and the Library NFC is used to launch digital bits of information. For example, there is the picture of the Internal in the main room and on the picture, there is an NFC chip that when scanned opens up a web page to the interval on the Long Now. All throughout the displays are NFC chips and QR codes that launch informational pages about the topic in which they are labeled or applied.
The Transhuman House has its own GeoCache for several reasons. One it marks the location of one of the of public drop servers. Two and more importantly the GeoCache is fun. Some of the activities we do include tours of the local area and including geocaches. Having a GeoCache at the transhuman house and other important landmarks provide a way to engage the groups on these walking tours of the area and with the idea of the Transhuman House.

The BioCell Research project is focused on whole biosphere system design for plug-able aquaponics modules. This includes complex system design in a plug-able manner to take compost and solar input and out put food from fish to tomatoes. If your interested in this project please setup an appointment and visit the Transhuman House. Continue reading “BioCell Research”
The instrument collection is a collection of non-powered scientific instruments owned by the Foundation and on load to the Transhuman House. Many of these are ones that were purchased as they relate to books in the Foundation library and includes things like Astrolabes, Abacus, Sextants, Slide Rules and the like. Many of there are brass and collector items but all are working versions.
The Foundations Library Project is about building a library of knowledge that is resilient enough to last for centuries. The purpose of such an archive is to help ensure a post human or trans-human civilization based on ours, for us or our children or even our machines. With the Archive, we work towards the long term success of intelligence in the universe. It is the single most important thing we can do to improve the likely hood of achieving a post human intelligence, if not from this civilization then maybe for the next. This is the key to why the Foundation is so committed to the creation of the library and archive.
(29 APR 20-17) – A soft launch of the Transhuman House in Provo Utah with guest including local transhumanists and others meet at the home. A discussion was hosted on the purpose and goals of the House, local transhuman activities and more was discussed as well as having Soylent 1.7 and 1.8 available to try. Seems the 1.7 uniformly tastes better according to attendees. While the site is not ready this was really the first local event around the Transhuman House including discussions about H+, MTA, The Foundation, Hall Labs and other groups organizations that the Transhuman House might get involved with.
The Sky Tree Biotopic System design project is based on the BioCell research project but designed to deliver a power source and aquaponics system that produces energy, water, oxygen, hydrogen and food and provides an aesthetic element to a community as well as not require any ground space short of docking and resource transfer capability or maintenance.
