Crushing Jell-O with a 83.5 pound weight is okay, I guess. The colored gelatin laser oozes itself out like a ring of slime and gets everywhere. What’s way cooler is smashing liquid nitrogen cooled Jell-O. That delivers a perfect shattering effect, like watching a planet get destroyed or flying through the asteroid…
Tennis racquets are excellent at turning objects—namely, tennis balls—into blobs because the strings have just the right amount of give to absorb a bit of punishment. What’s even cooler though, is when something—like Jell-O—goes straight through the webbing and gets cut and sliced and chopped into jiggly flying…
For over a century, Jell-O has been a part of American culture and, according to a 1904 edition of the Ladies Home Journal, "America's Favorite Dessert" (conveniently enough named such in an advertisement paid for by Jell-O before anyone was really buying it all). That said, ever since then it really has been one of…
Mmmm, Jell-O. Mmmmmm, bouncing Jell-O. So deliciously mesmerizing.
A little black light, some tonic water, and some Jell-O, and you can have a glowing dessert. It'll will be a treat for the tongue and the mind (mostly for the mind, though).
The line between life and death has been blurred by medicine for some time. When, exactly, a person stops being a mind and reverts to a bundle of random reflexes, is determined in a lot of ways, including an electroencephalogram.
If you wear contact lenses you're already familiar with hydrogels—a jelly-like material made from polymers soaked with water. But a new type of hydrogel developed at Harvard University promises to be far more robust than your corrective lenses, stretching up to twenty times its original length without breaking.
For some reason, we humans love to make solid foods liquid, and liquid foods solid. Key Lime Pie Martini? White Russian Ice Cream? I rest my case. Today, in honor of St. Paddy's Day, we're taking three Irish liquids, and making them into one awesome solid.
You know what kids don't deserve? Free pudding. And you know why? Because they're too damn eager. Puppy dog eyes may work on spineless parents, but they're not gonna move Kraft's stone hearted sample dispenser.
If you live in Manhattan and want to see a sight you'll never forget, then travel to West Broadway and Grand Street. Look up and you'll see the disturbing 3D face of the Jell-O pudding man.
I really wish that this was my breakfast today. Sure, you may think it looks ordinary—eggs, pancakes, doughnuts, coffee—but it's actually made entirely from Jell-O. Yup! All Jell-O everything. Unbelievable, right?
Testing for acute pancreatitis can take a while, which can be problematic. Brian Zaccheo, a student from the University of Texas, knows this. That's why he created this crazy sensor for under a buck—from aluminum foil, gelatin, milk protein, and a cheap LED light—that spots the condition in less than an hour.
There are Jell-O shots. And then there are the shots from My Jello Americans: Cory Kete, Moe Sheehan, and Megan Booth have elevated the Jell-O shot into an art form. An art form that gets you wasted.
First come the bullets charging through the jello. Then the hand crashing down on the stack of cement. And by the time you get to lighters in a blender, you realize that life is so much better in slow motion.
Jello shots got us through the first six months of college before we (quite unfortunately) learned to love beer, but the Twist 'n Shot will solve a problem as old as time itself for the next batch of college freshmen. While most Jello shots get partially stuck in the cup and require various (drunken) improvisation to…
