Candy could not get any more nerdalicious than these DIY LED design gummies that can be made from scratch. The ladies of Adafruit show you how to create these electrical delights, even demonstrating how to make the silicone mold that shapes them.

An incredibly time-consuming process, making these tiny gummies takes patience and precision, but the results are worth it if they are as tangy and delectable as they look. Using real LEDs and mixing silicone to create a food-grade mold, the ladies even construct the foam box in which they pour the mold. Then they mix everything precisely, adding ascorbic acid for a sour flavor.

The picks of the DIY LED design candies were made out of corn-based plastic using 3D printing.
