Biofabrication – Mushrooms in the Makerspace

MUSHROOMS!

Inspired by projects like Ecovative’s building and packaging materials – check out this guide to How to Make Your Own Growth Forms – and in line with our other biotinkering and fermentation science efforts, we’ve been slowly gathering mushroom making gear, including an autoclave…

With any luck, the jars will take, and we’ll be able to begin mass production. Meanwhile, we’re figuring out our new Formech vacuum former, and we think there are opportunities to use it in conjunction with our 3D printers and CNC machines to create custom forms for growing mushrooms in the makerspace.
