The computer circuits made of slime mould
Researchers at Plymouth University have built a musical bio-computer.
It contains an analogue computing circuit with components grown from a slime mould.
When electrical impulses are sent to the mould, its response is measured in current and translated back to a piano using electromagnets.
BBC Click's LJ Rich spoke with Professor Eduardo Miranda of the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research to find out more.
