3D Printing with Bees

Thu Jun 12, 2014, 11:41 AM


Dewars-honey-bees-11 by danlev

How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.

Watch:



Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!

That was fascinating, though the buzzing sound the bees are making keeps, well ... buzzing in my head.
What an idea though ! :o
