What would it look like if you could turn the sound of your voice into a piece of jewelry?
One Japanese company called Encode Ring has developed a 3D-printed ring designed in the shape of the sound wave produced by your very own voice. The result is an incredibly beautiful and unique product for each and every customer.
"We all have feelings that we'd like to communicate, even though we can't normally talk about them," it says on the website. "They sound like a platitude when put it into writing and can't be told in your own words."
Encode Ring prompts customers to record a three second message, in their own voice, onto their website. That recording is then translated into a visual sound wave to be used as the design for a platinum, gold, stainless steel, or silver ring. Trying it is so much fun, you won't want to stop.
"The company is looking to adapt the same kind of printing technology for other types of product, like recording audio from live concerts to immortalize performances," CNET reports.
Needless to say, the Encode Ring is not only unique, but it's one message that your friend, family member, significant other — or whomever you give it to — can have forever.
