Living Mushtari – 3d-printed and generatively grown microbial factory

Developed at the MIT Media Lab's Mediated Matter group by William Patrick, Sunanda Sharma, Steven Keating and directed by Neri Oxman, Living Mushtari is a new development of Wanderers project released last year with focus on Mushtari, a 3D printed wearable with 58 meters of internal fluid channels designed to function as a wearable microbial factory.

How can we design relationships between the most primitive and the most sophisticated life forms? Can we design wearables embedded with synthetic microorganisms that can enhance and augment biological functionality? Can we design wearables that generate consumable energy while being exposed to the sun?
