Scientists with very important priorities in Switzerland are developing slow-release caffeine that will yield a full day’s kick in just one cup of coffee.
It’ll essentially be like roaming the office all day strapped to an intravenous line that’s tapped into an espresso with no need to make a pit stop at the coffee machine.
