Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.

Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?

With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.

Today, we look at how advanced technology can be deployed to tackle life’s everyday problems, such as spilling your beer while busting a move or getting bumped on the dancefloor. With this beer-stabilising harness from Australia’s Hahn Brewery, you’ll never sacrifice a drop. A feat of engineering if we ever saw one.
