DARPA and the Living Home

As home ownership and repair becomes an increasingly expensive and time-consuming affair, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has embarked on a program mission of creating building materials that have living organism attributes. Their goal is to not only grow building materials on site but for the structure to be a self-healing, essentially repairing itself as needed.

That means we’re that much closer to living in self-repairing sustainable, custom grown Hobbit-holes.

And once we’re on that path, it’s only a few hundred thousand years until we’ve evolved into the subterranean-dwelling Morlocks HG Wells predicted in “The Time Machine”.

Thanks a lot DARPA…
