FastCompany Magazine

The official Tumblr of Fast Company.

The advanced collective and social intelligence of bacteria colonies makes for some very psychedelic design

Did you know that bacteria can use tools?

"When growing on a surface, a colony might come across a gap that it can’t cross. What a bacteria might then do is send out individual cells to collect spores of fungi and throw them into the gap, effectively growing a natural bridge that the colony can then spread across."

Cool!
