Fabric from Fermented Wine
« on: July 08, 2015, 09:47:34 AM »
A group of scientists at the University of Western Australia has produced fabric by letting microbes go to work on wine. The scientists culture baceria called Acetobacter in vats of cheap red wine, and the bacteria ferments the alcohol into fibers that float just above the surface. These fibers can be extracted and fashioned into clothing. The only catch? Acetobacter produce vinegar as its end product, so the garments have a definite odor.
