11.23.11 Mighty Mycelium

Mycelium (Wikipedia)

The Paternoster Plastic Waste-Upcycler is another awesome invention that will be displayed in the Microbial home. It uses mycelium (that’s right, fungus) to break down plastic packaging and waste. It molds the plastic into toy shapes for kids and even produces edible mushrooms!
