2012-06-20: Print the shark .stl file hollow, in silver ABS. Suspend in glass vitrine filled with solution of Red Bull ®, water, and blue dye. Note: the solution mixture is scale-dependent. If printing large, too much dye will make the solution opaque. Solution color should range from light blue to light green, depending on lighting conditions. I recommend 4 parts Red Bull ®, 252 parts water, .006 parts blue dye, with a mininum of 2 ounces of Red Bull ® regardless of scale. Fill shark with a mixture of solution and air to achieve neutral boyancy.

Ok, dumb question—why suspend it in Red Bull?

Corporate sponsor product placement.

This makes perfect sense.

Way cooler than the original.....
