A close encounter of the frozen kind

No 80’s arcade phenomenon has gotten more product placement love than Space Invaders, so it should come as no surprise that you can now make your mixed drinks simultaneously cooler and nerdier with Ice Invaders, an “oven-safe, dishwasher-safe, raygun-safe” ice tray that’s capable of creating four types of retro alien ships.

I’ve actually had some previous, and positive, experience with FRED’s novelty ice trays, should the jagged edges of these 8-bit critters be giving you pause. Just push up from the bottom, don’t twist, and your invader ice cubes should come out looking fresh from the mothership. There’s no official pricing yet as these won’t be available until the Spring, but expect these to be in the $10 range of their past silicone selections.
