I backed this project today and am excited to share it with all of you.
grow and glow.nice project. if i needed a lampshade…
Interesting. I always knew you were a fungi.
If he makes a hat out of it then I’ll give him the title of a fungi!
I think you’re pushing your morels on the rest of us.
That would be way too cremini, no?
And now we can make freely make those bets about eating our hats – win or lose, no problem.
During a humid night this thing could probably crawl and eat your socks.
“Invasion of the Body Snatchers” was my immediate reaction.
Another great crowdfunding project you should all check out is Cards to the Heart -https://www.kickstarter.com…”Question cards that encourage conversations to deepen friendships and relationships.”The project’s nearly half funded with 26 days to go – it could still use some more love!I bought a 4-pack as the heart cards will be a really great gift – good for couples and families.P.S. I don’t know the project creator and have no connection to him or the project – though I hope it gets enough pledges so I’ll get my cards. 🙂
Wonder if the fruit will grow too 🙂
Sorry I don’t get this / or the price point go plant something anywhere refuse packaging in the store. People build mud huts to live in using the power of the sun !!!
Like it but…Vague on whether this is pet safe. Which means that if they are not saying it is, it isn’t.Not for me then.
My wife keeps a menagerie. We have a rabbit hutch, ferret cage, lizards and an Akita. We had a boxer to but she sadly got lymphoma.You do have to watch. I would feed the Akita some of my lamb kebobs, he loved them, but I noticed he would wretch the day after.What a dumb ass am I. They are allergic to onions and garlic. Never knew. I know people will say don’t feed them people food but he loves it so much. I cook his with no spice.
You are a good person my friend.We need a visit sometime I think.
We live in a harbor town. We had a feral cat have a litter under my deck for the last eight weeks. I cannot have cats (allergic)We had to trap them but they all went to a farm where they love cats. The reason for the one small cage was that one did want to get caughtI paid to have the mother spayedMy Akita is very happy. He has nothing but hate in his heart for cats. A big Tom gave him a whooping and he hates https://uploads.disquscdn.c…
My samthecat was a feral.Now the most spoiled wonderful (and smartest) cat who lives on the 25th floor and tries to run into other peoples apartments and the elevator.
Look at that yellow/orange one looking at me at the back of the cage: He/She always would look at me. Notice the food: Starkist Tuna or Salmon.They are in a good place. They went here first: https://www.bestvetyet.com/ they are a high end vet.That mother was pissed off. I did not look as they got her from the cage. There was some sort of noose involved. She got her shots and was spayed. I had no desire to open that door to the cage.
100% safe for pets and humans 🙂 I‘ve eaten it myself
Is there a company that makes these videos? They seem to have the same feel (they are awesome) I would like to hire them for a couple of projects.
Yes, I thought the video was of good quality too.
Sandwich Video does some great work: https://sandwichvideo.com
Hi Philip,I work at Ecovative and helped work on this campaign. I will gladly put you in touch with our videographer!Shoot me an email [ shane at ecovativedesign dot com ]
I think it’s fantastic. And it shines a great light (pardon the pun) on what our future can be if we are more attentive and try and link arms with the natural world and not the chemical one.
see my comment above
CONTRIBUTORS:Unbelievable! Human life verse lampshade.Focus!
Can you wear it at office holiday parties?
I think this project is awesome. I recently came across another company using mycelium in packaging (along with other creative ideas) — https://ecovativedesign.com…
This is super weird, but interesting 🙂 I wonder if the molds are biodegradeable
“What if we could look to the natural world to understand how things are made. To understand how nature creates. And what If we too could create using these same principles, just like nature.”I could run their video intro for the Pattern Alphabet at na2ure. Except the Pattern ABC teaches children to see how nature builds everything starting as early as preschool.Yes — learn how nature grows. Grow lampshades and more! It’s the future, hopefully.I hope to have educated the next wave of growers, by planting the seeds of patterns in how they see the world.
Yes — may the work that all of you good people are doing save the next generations from having to deal with oceanic islands of plastic garbage and other abominations.
We should make a Threes-style game from your pattern alphabet 🙂
Sorta like this which I find addictive (as do my kids!) http://doge2048.com
Always open to ideas. I have a mobile app in progress for 8-30 months old which is actually age appropriate.
Oh cool! Sounds like a dinner is in order to get caught up!
It’s so important to learn to appreciate the patterns of nature as early as possible — so many objects that are manufactured today can be grown in the future: sustainably, ethically, close to where they’re needed & w/ minimal environmental impacts. If we’re able to teach kids (like with the wonderful work you’ve been doing) this over the currently prevalent culture of the disposable we’ll be better off as a society.Here’s to the growers <3
It would be great to see all of the above Ana, and have it spring from respect for animals, plants and resources.
Fred, I may be a little sensitive here (and I’m sure you hadn’t thought through this fully) but let’s just say it’s a little insensitive to bring up making a lampshade of out a living organism on the eve of yom kipper.That said, feel free to delete his comment after reading.
Apparently according to halacha Fred is not Jewish. If that is the case, he is bound by Noahide laws, not Jewish laws.This topic is a thinly veiled argument in favor pantheism which is a type of avoda zara (idolatry) and therefore strictly prohibited by halacha.
I won’t be buying one of these anytime soon!
So-called rabbis in the Reform and Conservative movements wantonly violate halacha. According to halacha they are unable to convert a non-Jew.If Fred were “converted” within the Reform or Conservative movements, such a “conversion” would have no halachic standing whatsoever.
Consider_Halacha:We know! Awaiting the questioner to Fred.
Mushrooms! Been seeing this guy at tree-hugger conferences for 15+ years 🙂 6 Ways Mushrooms Can Save The World:https://www.ted.com/talks/p…
Well you missed the Mushroom Capital of the World Festival where I live: http://mushroomfestival.org/ I don’t recall seeing him there.
Uh, there are some reasons for lampshades, and the ones grown from mushroom stuff look like they don’t meet any of the reasons.First Reason: Make the light source physically larger and less intense per square inch.Second Reason: Reflect over half the light to a specific direction.The mushroom shade will just absorb light.
This would be so great for classrooms.
It really is a good time. Not too far from you. And they say we produce more and more different kind of Mushrooms than anybody else (don’t know if that is a true fact) but I do know the owner of a big Mushroom Company that has houses here and in Oregon.The best part about this is the profits go to charities and scholarships for the people that work in the houses.It truly is a shitty job, that is literal choice of words. They take the waste from the horse and chicken farms, compost it with a straw they grow here and then steam it with past mushroom soil for the button mushrooms. For others like the Oyster ones, they mix in oak chips. Wednesday is the traditional mix day where they turn over the compost. You can smell it.They take the soil after it has been used mix it into topsoil and then screen it and call it super soil. It is what fills my raised bed garden and greenhouse along with a thin coat on the yard. Grows things like you cannot believe.
