Fungus Among Us – Final Presentation Idea

I’m interesting in creating a wearable mycelium sound trigger as a mask or wearable on another body part.  I like the aesthetic of Eric Klarenbeeks’ 3D printed Myceliumchair and would like to design it using a printer if possible.

I have a MIDISPROUT that measures the micro-electrical currents of a plant and converts it into MIDI signals and I’m interested in exploring if this could be done with a Mycelium piece. I haven’t heard of anyone using this with fungus and I was hesitant to try it with the pads because I thought it might tear the skin of the mushroom, but I’m going to investigate how to do it with less damage.

I would allow the mushrooms to grow because because I think it looks beautiful and what the mycelium wants to do naturally and I assume there is more water content in the “fruit”

I found someone doing experiments with Makey Makey that were successful:

I like the idea that the fruit will continually change based on the fruit growth, given that it sprouts.
