3D Printing with Bees

 |  |  |  |  June 14, 2013


3D printing tech can be quite amazing, but it’s usually done by melting plastic – or maybe sugar. But this is the first time I’ve heard of 3D printing using bees – or as it’s being called “3-B” printing.

As part of a promotion for its new honey-infused Highlander Honey, Dewars has been putting 80,000 of its highlander honey bees to work, building 3D sculptures.

By having the bees work within custom-shaped forms, they have already made a giant honeycomb shaped like a scotch bottle, and are currently buzzing away on another sculpture – a man’s bust. Or in this case, Dewars’ “Drinking Man.”

Head on over to Dewar’s Facebook page to see the 3-B printing experiment in action, and enter for a chance to win the Drinking Man honeycomb sculpture for yourself.

P.S. That Highlander Honey is pretty tasty stuff too.
