Personalised medicine
DoseMe has created a software platform that uses patient data and laboratory results to estimate a person?s metabolism to accurately provide the best possible level of drug dosage. Patient benefits of DoseMe include the increase of childhood leukaemia survival by 10 percent, the halving of chemotherapy side effects, increase in patients in therapeutic range from 35 percent to 90 percent and overall reduction in mortality rates by 50 percent. While patient benefits are clear, the cost savings are also impressive. DoseMe looks to save more than US$2,500 per patient and reduce hospital stay length by up to 16 days. www.doseme.com.au

A sculpture that looks real
Mustangs at Las Colinas is a bronze sculpture that commemorates the wild mustangs that were historically important inhabitants of much of Texas. It shows a group running through water with fountains giving the effect of water splashed by the animals? hooves. The horses are intended to represent the drive, initiative and unfettered lifestyle that were fundamental to the state in its pioneer days.

Enjoy a glass of fine wine without opening the bottle
With Coravin, you can pour a glass of even your most precious bottles of corked wine, no waste or special occasion required. This Coravin wine pourer was spotted at Gary Farrell Winery in Healdsburg, CA. No need to open a bottle of wine to enjoy one or 2 glasses -the Coravin goes through the cork to pour and then is removed leaving the cork intact and the bottle sealed. www.coravin.com

Mosaic sushi
This is a simple concept. Put some pieces of sushi together in a square with some imagination and you've created mosaic sushi. Simple, yes, but also very creative and it makes normal sushi look boring. This idea has become very popular in Japan and is likely to spread.
