Dangerous Popsicles, Frozen Treats Shaped Like Cacti and Deadly Pathogens

Dangerous Popsicles is a collection of fearsome popsicles shaped like cacti and deadly pathogens. Designer Wei Li created the treats, first 3D printing the forms, and then making silicon popsicle molds. The popsicles are presented as an experiment in “user-unfriendliness.” Li has posted instructions on how to make your own Dangerous Popsicles on Instructables.

Dangerous Popsicles create a unique sensory experience. Before tasting with your tongue, you first taste with your eyes and mind. The popsicles are nothing but water and sugar, but ideas of deadly viruses and the spikiness of cacti are enough to stimulate your senses, even before your first taste.
