A clever bit of advertising gimmickry from Guinness: these pint glasses bear QR codes than can't be read when the glass is empty, nor when it is filled with amber-colored beers. But when filled with black, murky Guinness, the revealed QR code can finally be scanned: "it tweets about your pint, updates your facebook status, checks you in via 4 square, downloads coupons and promotions, invites your friends to join, and even launches exclusive Guiness content."

A paralysed woman has become the first person to complete a marathon in a bionic suit.
Claire Lomas finished the London Marathon today, crossing the finishing line 16 days after the race began.
The 32-year-old said she was "over the moon" as she completed the 26.2-mile route, which she started on April 22 with 36,000 other participants.
The former chiropractor was in tears as she became the first person to complete any marathon using a bionic ReWalk suit at 12.50pm today.
Hundreds lined the streets as she made her final steps to complete the race.
Three mounted members of the Household Cavalry gave her a guard of honour as she crossed the finishing line on The Mall.
