Macintosh bounces back, in gelatinous manner

Jell-O computers
Competitors quiver with excitement

BOSTON (CNN) -- The latest iMacs do more than exhibit stylish colors. They wiggle, jiggle and bounce, especially when dropped from the second floor.

Budding scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology discovered these and other unique properties while researching the delectability of desktops, taking part in a contest Friday to build the most realistic-looking iMac possible made out of Jell-O.

The main trick in the event, sponsored by the school and Apple computers, was finding enough structural support to keep the sculpture together.
