Sweden now has the world’s smallest McDonald’s restaurant. It may be tiny but it is packed with workers called drones, and has room to serve thousands of guests. They don’t make burgers and fries though. They have just one item on the menu: honey.
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.
