The Earl of Hurl presents....

Mold Cam I - Night of the Living Strawberries

Someone in MTI Bldg. 10 upper left a couple of strawberries in the fridge. There was no date stamp on the package, but I estimate from its looks that they were purchased around the beginning of August 1996.

I discovered some interesting growth on it Sept. 8 1996.

On Sept. 17 1996, I decided to remove the strawberries from the fridge to a more controlled environment (my office). I focused the IndyCam on it and will take a snapshot once a day using a cron job. You can view the growth on this web page.

The experment was terminated on Oct 23 1996. Reason: mold is dead now from lack of nourishment. Lets have a moment of silence in remembrance. You may want to view images around the Sept 30 dates to see our friend in its heyday.

Check back again soon, we are designing a new experiment in mold growth. Our current plans are to to snap an image every 15 minutes and auto-generate a time-lapse video clip. If you have any comments, please e-mail me at Please note: there are still some buttons left, see the bottom of this page to get yours.
