Bubble bath

Bubble bath

Milk? Nope. Chocolate? Try again. Gold? As if. According to Hungarian craft brewery Hedon, the most hedonistic substance to bathe in is good old beer.

They’ve chosen a little man submerged in the stuff for the brand’s logo, which is placed atop of some pleasingly simple bottle designs.

Just what the doctor measured

Just what the doctor measured

Another dimension for 3D printing

Another dimension

It all began in 1984 when Charles Hull (Chuck to his mates) created the first 3D printer. In the thirty years since we’ve seen toys, bikes, cars, prosthetic limbs and replacement hips run off the 3D production line. Someone’s even created a 3D printer that prints 3D printers.

The cab’s waiting. That final Jaegerbomb is rapidly starting to feel like a bad idea. And you’re all ready to call it a night. But where on earth is Bob?

If your friends have an annoying habit of wandering off / falling asleep in a corner / getting lucky, then you need Buddy Check, a new app from Absolut Vodka. It uses A-GPS to pinpoint your friends’ exact location on a night out, and even sends an alert when someone crosses a virtual geofence.

Un verre d’oh!

Pieter Mondrian was an artist best known for neoplasticism – a grid of primary colours painted on a white background. Homer Simpson is an overweight cartoon, best known for his love of Duff beer and lax attitude towards nuclear power.

Waste makes taste

The saying goes that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Whilst it’s difficult to pinpoint the precise author of this pithicism (possibly Chambers Journal of popular literature, science and arts, 1879) it’s been used as the backbone for many a business in recent years – just look at eBay and Gumtree.
