It's a Shame To Think These 3D Milled Ice Cubes Will Melt Away

You can find silicone ice cube moulds for everything from perfect spheres to gummy bears these days. But if you're throwing a dinner party and really want to impress your guests, nothing says "I have too much money and free time" like using a 3D milling machine to sculpt a frozen drink-chilling masterpiece like this.

Created for a Japanese whisky called Suntory, this frozen pagoda started life as a solid chunk of ice before being slowly nibbled away to create this stylish way to cool a drink. The hardest part isn't the milling process, though, it's having to watch it slowly melt away when you put it in a glass of booze. [3D Rocks via Notcot]
