Jen Liu, MTID ‘17 Creates Wearable Technology to bring High-Tech to Mushroom Hunting

Jen Liu, MTID '17 developed tools that allow foragers to collect data on environmental conditions while they hunt for fungi. In recently published research, she describes her project to build wearable technology into this hobby. Her designs include a walking stick that stores samples of dirt and a glove that takes soil moisture readings when you dip your fingers into the earth.

Liu recently presented these technologies at a conference in Montreal in April along with study co-author Daragh Byrne of the CMU SoA and CU Boulder Assistant Professor Laura Devendorf.
