In 1996, Vita-More innovated the concept of a whole body prosthesis. With a team of experts (Marvin Minsky (AI), Hans Moravec (robotics) and Ralph Merkle (nanotechnology)), she designed the first future body design as a wearable system. This is known as [[Primo Posthuman]], a vision for a highly modified [[transhuman body]].<ref>[ "Ep. 32 - Designing the Future with Natasha Vita-More"]</ref>
In 2004 she briefly set up an early alliance of transhumanist organizations in the form of the [[Transhumanist Cooperative Colloquium]].
