The adjustable shelf can support loads of more than 300 kg – heavier than three average adult men, even wearing full beekeeping kit – but weighing less than three kg.

To create the “ Honeycomb Shelf ”, engineers sandwiched a layer of honeycomb-like cells consisting of recycled paper and a water-based glue between two layers of light and durable fibreglass.

This Is a Great Example of the Ford Mustang SVO

  This Is a Great Example of the Ford Mustang SVO <p>The original turbo Ford Mustang was geared toward a different kind of Mustang owner.</p>Rather than a V-8, power came from a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder.
