Introduction: Alien-jelly

About: I'm a student of mechanical engineering at Aalborg university in Denmark. I absolutely love to tinker with electronics and mechanics, and thus much of my spare time is spent on hobby robotics and 3D printers...

here is a "how to" that will show you how to make your own cool jelly
which is perfect for party and all kind of "happy days" for any kind of Scientist

finished product

Step 1: Stuff You Are Going to Need

you will need:

one bottle of fizzy drink ][ you can also use food coloring and sugar
3-5 pices of gelatine
a cone schaped glass/cub
and a heat-boiler

Step 2: Melt the Gelatine

take your heat boiler and pour some water into a CUB becourse glass can shatter
then take 4 pices of gelatine and melt them in the boiling water
stir with a spoon or fork

Step 3: Pour and Let It Cool Down

pour it in a glass and ad fizzy drink ( or water, sugar and food-color whish will work even better!)
now keep stiring and let it cool down

    You could also make the embryo using cmbooher's home-made gummies recipe: here. Only problem with that is that you'd probably have to make your own mould, but if you found the right colour, it'd look very much more alien-like than marzipan (it'd taste better, too). You could also use riboflavin to make it glow.


    Suggestions: - mould the marzipan alien embryo in the jelly- pour half, let it set a bit, add the marzipan, pour the rest. - add tonic water- it tastes weird and makes the jelly glow under UV light. - replace "heat-boiler" with "kettle" (but those crazy USinese don't often have electric kettles, it seems)

    Why would tonic water (carbonated water) glow under UV? It is simply regular water with CO2 trapped inside it.

    tonic water only glows if it has quinine in it.

    Even in the US, Tonic Water comes with quinine. I think SODA Water is the sort that is just bubbles and water.


    I thought so, but I don't quibble about US vocab because of local differences like the whole pop/soda thing that I might be unaware of- I just know what we say this side of the pond and what I have heard some Americans say.

    Until I started talking to Americans online I had no idea you used the word "pop", I thought "soda" was ubiquitous because everyone on TV says it. Turns out you don't have a homogeneous lexicon- who'd have thunk?

    We Americans do have several different accents, some of which are nearly (or fully) dialects all their own (Cajun, for example). The American accent that is normally on TV is primarily that of California natives, where a majority of American actors come from. It's just further subdivision of the English language.

    "Soda" is more common, but "pop" is a Michigan thing, where I live. "Coke" is used more in the South, referring to all carbonated beverages that are not alcoholic. "homogeneous lexicon" Excuse me? I'm straight and always have been. Nor am I a short Irish chap guarding a pot of gold. :)

    "A Michigan thing" "Pop" is used in many other northern states, not just Michigan, as well as parts [most?] of Canada.

    I love you all but please don't derail this instructable into a ridiculous discussion about middle-american vernacular. This benefits no one.


    We're talking about different types of tonic water. In the UK, "tonic water" means a drink made with quinine, which makes it fluoresce blue under UV light. See the wikipedia article.

    Tonic water means the exact same thing in the United States. I think he is just confused.

    I have one and I love it! I can't believe they aren't more popular here!

    Does the fizzy drink make the jello fizzy?
