Other countries spend billions of dollars to build research tools like the Large Hadron Collider. But New Zealand scientists are adept at applying brainpower on a budget. If the collider finds the elusive Higgs boson, a more interesting question arises: what can Kiwis do with it?

Idealog has been covering the most interesting people, businesses and issues from the fields of innovation, design, technology and urban development for over 12 years. And we're asking for your support so we can keep telling those stories, inspire more entrepreneurs to start their own businesses and keep pushing New Zealand forward. Give over $5 a month and you will not only be supporting New Zealand innovation, but you’ll also receive a print subscription and a copy of the new book by David Downs and Dr. Michelle Dickinson, No. 8 Recharged (while stocks last).
