A Japanese Whiskey Company Made Some Amazingly Nerdy Sculpted Ice Cubes


Using a process that’s a bit like reverse 3D-printing – subtractive carving based on a digital file rather than additive layering – Suntory whiskey has been promoting its booze with mini-masterpieces of ice art in glasses of its beverage, from Jaws to Mario and Batman. They’re also holding a contest featuring user submissions.

You can see a video of the process below, but be sure to check out all the cool sculpts they already have – either in still photos, or 3D Flash-animated full rotations.
