Blog: Olly WehringGot to love those Germans - I do

Olly Wehring | 9 October 2007

Whilst my personal opinion on liquid restrictions at UK airports is probably not suitable to be aired on these pages, you can probably guess it, based on how relieved I am to hear of this new invention from Germany.

A machine, developed in the country by scientists at the Juelich Research Centre, can ascertain what kind of liquid is contained in glass and plastic bottles and tubes. The device takes only one second to find what type of liquid it is scanning.

According to local reports, the device can also spot inflammable fluids and certain sorts of acids.

You can always count on the Germans to come up with solutions to problems, you know.

And, with a surname like mine, be assured I speak from experience.
