This week in PopTech: Mushrooms, waves and plastic bottle sailboat adventures

There’s always something brewing in the PopTech community. From the world-changing people, projects and ideas in our network, a handful of this week’s highlights follows.

  • Ecovative Design, founded by Social Innovation Fellow Eben Bayer, just launched its first consumer product, the MycoBowl, made out of 100% mushrooms and seed husks.
  • 2010 PopTech speaker Susan Casey, author of The Wave: In Pursuit of the Rogues, Freaks, and Giants of the Ocean took on tsunamis and science on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart a couple weeks ago.
  • Brooklyn Denim Co. invited four artists and designers to rethink Time Warner Cable’s logo for a series of limited edition t-shirts. Proceeds from t-shirt sales will support initiatives here at PopTech.
