"I somehow missed this when you posted. Great idea. I love the use of slime mould as a social metaphor.  Have you managed to do this? If so, let us know how you got on... :)"

Hi all,Ian is about to send me my first batch of slime mould, excited to get my hands mouldy! Thought I'd share what I'm up to and hopefully you can give me some advice/let me know if you think I will run into difficulties.The plan is to have the physarum plot me the fastest route to get around my university or through a public space without being identified by CCTV.
