This video looks back over the history of WMG and some of the headlines it has made over the past 30 years

Medieval mason’s marks could spell the end of flat-pack furniture misery

Fri, 04 Jun 2010 12:28:42 GMT

A medieval system of marking stone in building work could be a cheap and effective way of ending the modern day frustration of constructing ‘flat-pack’ furniture, according to a University of Warwick academic. Mason’s Marks refer to marks made on the blocks of walling stone and on moulded stone as part of the construction process, and have been in use for centuries. Academics studying the use of the marks at the University of Warwick claim self-assembly furniture manufacturers could learn a lot from the ancient system and save thousands of pounds in production costs.

Rob Carpenter (TNS Magasin) presents on the high tech methods used by TNS Magasin, a pioneer in the field of shopper behavioural research.

Eye Tracking utilises an infra-red beam, shone into the back of the retina to track the wearer's eye movements and fixations, offering far superior data on shoppers' attention than cameras that merely record field-of-view. Marketers can benefit from analysing exactly what the eye is drawn to on shelves, packaging and at point of sale.
