3D Printed House is Ready for the Zombie Apocalypse

PassivDom modulOne
The world of prefab homes is exploding in recent years, so it’s hard to find anything innovative in the field. PassivDom, however, is managing to make a name for itself with their 3D printed house, modulOne, and its series of completely unique add-on packages, including a zombie apocalypse survival kit. That alone is enough to make us want one!

All of the standard prefab amenities are available in their modulOne. It is ready-built, transportable, sustainable, and outfitted with heat, ventilation, air-conditioning, water, and sewage. PassivDom finishes the interior and exterior of each building and their standard model also comes with furniture, appliances, and kitchen utensils. Several buildings can be combined together to create one large home – again, standard in the prefab world. Where PassicDom really shines though, is in the extras.

For starters, the buildings are 3D printed and come with a five-year warranty. Every home is equipped with a house management system that can be accessed through your iPhone or Android. This is typically an add-on with other prefab companies. They also hook up each house with a high-quality surveillance system, also accessible through your phone. With all of this comes one year free mobile internet for the house, something no other prefab company is currently offering. All of this is enough to make PassivDom stand out, and we haven’t even gotten to the add-on packages yet.

Each modulOne can be customized to fit your lifestyle, or paranoia, depending on which package you choose. They offer everything from the “Comfort” package, which includes a fireplace and deck, to the “Tamagotchi” package, which is the ultimate smart house giving you electronic control over every system in the house, including the window blinds and even the humidity level. While these are all impressive, they’re nothing compared to our favorite add-on package: the “Zombie Apocalypse.”

PassivDom outfits their basic 118 square foot home with the latest in security technology, including a GSM-enabled system to guarantee access to emergency services when the zombies finally come. Be alerted to any walking dead intruders on your property with the circular perimeter alarm system. Should the zombies make it past your defenses, the home is equipped with armored glazing – at least they won’t be getting through the windows! And finally, PassivDom thought of the most important item that is always overlooked in every apocalypse movie: toilet paper. Their Zombie Apocalypse add-on comes with extra toilet paper storage so you will never have to resort to using old magazines or dry leaves.

Ironclad Distillery: A historic rise from an extraordinarily humble background
What to know about Ironclad Distillery

It is often said that big operations have small or humble beginnings. It's hard to imagine some of the biggest brands in the liquor and spirits business starting small, but that's true of most companies. Of course, since many started closer to a century ago, we never witnessed those origins (probably because most of us weren't even alive then). So, it's quite a treat when we get to see the start of something great, much like we're seeing with craft distilleries, such as Ironclad Distillery.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the first season of The Acolyte.

The first season of The Acolyte has come to an end, and while opinion has been mixed on the season as a whole, there was certainly plenty to unpack in that finale, including some implications for the rest of Star Wars. The finale sees a memory-wiped Mae and Osha switching sides, with Osha agreeing to be taught by Manny Jacinto's Qimir. While the plot had its own shocking moments, though, the surprises didn't end there.
