3B Printing?

Yes, we said "3B" printing. It's definitely not a technology like 3D printing, but we thought you'd be interested in seeing it. 
 
Created by liquor manufacturer Dewars, 3B printing was used for a promotion for their new "Highlander Honey" Scotch. It's a relatively straightforward process: a custom-shaped form is filled with honeybees, who build a wax honeycomb structure within. When the form is removed, a honeycomb retains the original form's shape. 
 
No extruders, lasers or DLPs used in this technology. Unless they 3D print the form, that is. Just bees. Lots and lots of bees.
