Project creates prototype headphones out of yeast, fungus

Finland-based studio Aivan, in collaboration with scientists from Aalto University and VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, has designed a pair of headphones using yeast-based bioplastic, fungus and other natural materials in hopes of demonstrating the potential of synthetic biology in 3D form. The development of the prototype involved the use of six various microbially grown substances, including the hydrophobin protein produced using the trichoderma reesei fungus and mixed with plant cellulose for the padding.
