WikiPearl the New Mochi

In a little shop near the Louvre museum in Paris, a very strange type of ice cream is being sold. At the counter customers don’t order cups, cones or shakes; here they ask for WikiPearls, little donut hole-sized balls of ice cream that are covered in a flavored, protective skin.
WikiPearl™ was first invented in a Harvard classroom where bio-creator and professor David Edwards sparked a discussion around the possibility of transporting water in ways inspired by our biological cell.

Edwards then pursued his research in collaboration with designer François Azambourg and biologist Don Ingber. The result of their work are presented to the public for the first time during the 10th Experience at the Laboratoire in Paris. Read more at:
