A transhumanist, Zoltan Istvan, founded the Transhumanist Party in October 2014. He is planning to run for president of the US in the 2016 election. As a transhumanist, he supports the idea of humans becoming more than human—everything from enchancing our senses to 3D printing organs. Zoltan’s main goal is to extend lifespans. According to him, we’re very close to the science being developed—there’s just not enough money. He states that if he becomes president, he will channel military spending into research for this. He doesn’t really intend to win, just raise awareness.
