Chow down on a plastic-eating fungus (VIDEO)
Plastic trash could have a delicious future.
The concept of eating fungi that has gobbled up a pile of trash is as challenging as it is intriguing. But the entire project is helped along by a truly space-aged design that somehow makes the process look clean and cool. The design studio even created special cutlery to help people hold and eat the fungus pods.
Does Fungi Mutarium herald a future in which people chow down on fungus that in turn devoured plastic waste? So far, there’s no way to tell—the project is merely a prototype. They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, but perhaps one day it will be food as well.
