  • Publication number: 20180148682
    Abstract: A molding system for forming an inoculated lignocellulose based medium into a fungal molded shape, the molding system comprising a vessel within which environmental conditions are regulated, the vessel comprising an inoculated lignocellulose based medium capable of supporting growth of saprophytic fungi without any secondary organisms displacing the process through infection a secondary organic material layered near the top and bottom of the inoculated lignocellulose based medium, a hard mold containing the flexible vessel; and a compressive system for applying a primary compressive pressure of at least 10 PSI to the lignocellulose based medium such that it takes on a fungal molded shape.

  • Patent number: 9951307
    Abstract: A method for growing organically derived building materials in the form of a moldable substrate that can be engineered to serve a wide range of manufacturing and construction applications is presented. In particular, the embodiments consider a plurality of fungal molded shapes preferably grown from fungal inoculum and mechanically compressed at least once during the growing process as well as integration of structure support members to the fungal structure. The present invention provides a fungal substrate which could be molded, and easily and cheaply preprocessed to precise geometric specifications. The organically derived building materials also incorporate layers of structural reinforcements to improve load bearing and other structural capacities.

  • Publication number: 20180014468
    Abstract: A method of forming fungal materials and fungal objects from those fungal materials, the method comprising the steps of growing a first fungal tissue in contact with a nutritive vehicle; supplying a porous material in contact with said first fungal tissue; directing growth of said fungal tissue through said porous material such that a portion of said fungal tissue comprises a first fungal material having first fungal hyphae; optionally incorporating composite material; directing a change in the composition or growth pattern of at least some of said first fungal hyphae; separating at least a portion of the first fungal material from said nutritive vehicle; obtaining a second fungal material having second fungal hyphae; and forming a fungal object by encouraging fused growth between said first fungal material and said second fungal material and optionally incorporating composite material.

  • Patent number: 9302196
    Abstract: A construction set comprises a plurality of elements mutually co-operable to produce at least one assembly, wherein the elements comprise a plurality of connectors (100, 100?) each comprising a substantially cylindrical body and a hollow base, the body being provided with a radially extending cylindrical projection (130?) and the base with at least one groove (131?) and the projection and the groove being shaped to permit assembly of two such connectors (100, 100?) in mutually orthogonal relationship by engagement of the projection of one of those connectors in the at least one groove of the other one of those connectors.

  • Publication number: 20120094371
    Abstract: A test device, including: a compartment defining an environment and comprising a specimen region; an indicator medium disposed in the compartment; a separation medium disposed in the compartment between the specimen region and the indicator medium; an active ingredient adjacent the specimen region; and a color indicator disposed on the indicator medium and responsive a chemical compound produced by a reaction involving the active ingredient by changing from a first color to a second color.

  • Patent number: 8136335
    Abstract: A harvester for brassicas, the harvester being movable along a plant row and comprising an endless conveyor orientated in the direction of the plant row, the conveyor being of generally tubular form defined by opposed rows of arcuate conveyor fingers movable from an open condition in which free ends of the opposed fingers are spaced so as to define a generally tubular configuration which is open at one side to a closed condition in which the free ends of the opposed fingers are adjacent to define a generally closed tubular configuration, the conveyor having an upper run and a lower run, the conveyor being configured at its forward end portion so that the fingers are in their open condition during transition from the upper run to the lower run and move downwardly onto a plant to be harvested so as to move foliage away from the plant head and to allow the plant head to enter the interior of the conveyor through the open side, with the fingers then moving to a closed condition to thereby capture the plant head w
