The Development of a Biodegradable Computer Chip Could Be Facilitated by Mushrooms

 What if mushrooms could be used to create a computer chip? It turns out that employing fungus as a functional substrate for integrated circuits (ICs) is a brilliant concept, despite the fact that it may not be the first thought that comes to mind when discussing electrical advancement.

Let's shed some light on these delicious, spore-bearing, dark-loving fungus bodies and see how they might serve as an inspiration for future technological advancement.

Use Less, Want Less

Although they are common and valuable, electronic devices are not built to last. The WEEE Forum estimates that in 2022, 5.3 billion mobile phones were thrown out or stored away and never used again. This is true even though many of its plastic pieces could take more than a thousand years to completely dissolve and they include valuable mineral components like gold, silver, and palladium.

Consider the fact that some smartphones and electrical devices have really been created with "planned obsolescence" in mind if that isn't awful enough. Have you ever observed that your phone doesn't seem to be operating as quickly or holds a charge as well after a few years? You might believe that you've just been too demanding of it, but these malfunctioning features could actually be intended as a feature, not a bug, to persuade you that an upgrade is necessary.

It's more than just a mere conspiracy idea today that businesses are being sued all around the world for this behavior. But regardless of the underlying cause, the result is the same: Phones, smartwatches, tablets, and a plethora of other devices are breaking down more frequently than ever before, which has caused a large increase in electronic waste. Because of this, people are becoming more interested in alternatives that can degrade more swiftly. Mushrooms can help with that.
