Would You Eat A Virus-Shaped Popsicle?
Licking influenza has never been so pleasurable.
San Francisco based artist Wei Li creates popsicles that resemble deadly viruses and bacteria.
She also makes popsicles that look like prickly cacti.
The popsicles won't kill you. The treats are comprised solely of sugar and water.
Wei Li created the silicone mold for the sweets using a 3D printer.
The purpose of the art project was to see if your mind and senses were tricked.
E. coli and MRSA are bacteria. An earlier version of this post mislabeled them as viruses. (We still would not recommend eating them.)
