Beer + taxidermy = packaging innovation Scottish independent beermaker BrewDog has taken unconventional packaging to a whole new level for its 55% proof The End of History. As well as claiming it to be the most alcoholic beer in the world, BrewDog co-founder James Watt also believes it to be the most expensive. A nattily-attired bottle of the Belgian blond ale will set you back a princely £500. Suggested serving is in a whisky tumbler, as opposed to necking straight from the furry bottle
The Dangerous Journey into the Gundestrup Cauldron 2 There was a time when, from Delphi temple to Altai tombs, cauldrons were not unusual to see. The Guldestrup cauldron is a unique witness of this last world.

These conditions had once been uniformly fatal. Now survival is commonplace, and a large part of the credit goes to the irreplaceable component of medicine known as intensive care. It’s an opaque term. Specialists in the field prefer to call what they do “critical care,” but that doesn’t exactly clarify matters.

BakerTweet Nitty gritty We built a wall-mounted, Wi-Fi device with a large, friendly dial for doughy hands. It had a bespoke Arduino circuit board and hygienic wipe-clean controls. We designed the CMS so even the tech-averse could edit the tweets and we trained the staff up, so they didn’t need us after launch. It solved a simple problem for bakers and customers, making them both happier. How to Remember Everything I’m in the middle of research for this article when I need to get something from another room. By the time I finish my five-second climb up the stairs, I’ve completely forgotten what it was I wanted and freeze until it hits me that I was grabbing my notebook... and some Mentos. I think.
