Gummy LEDs! Realistic Candy Electronics – New Tutorial

Ever look at a pile of 10mm LEDs and think “mmm, they look just like gumdrops!” These LED gummy candies are so realistic they’ll have your friends fooled at first, then delighted that they are actually edible (and delicious). Head over to the LED Gummy Candy tutorial at the Adafruit Learning System, and watch the video on YouTube (please subscribe!) and Vimeo.

The legs are 3D printed in PLA (corn-based plastic) and they function like toothpicks, we inserted them while the gummies we cooling. It should be noted that gummies are a low-temperature candy, do not use 3D printed parts with any high-temp hard candies!
