Personalized Street Grid Stainless Steel Earrings: You Pick the Place

Two years ago I called Fluid Earth "a fabulous mashup of technology, art and design to make what must be the most creative use yet of Google Earth, CNC technology and online shopping." Now, at the designboom mart I find the same technology applied to street maps. And earrings.

Here, once again you go online and pick your favourite city, district or neighbourhood and watch it transformed into at stainless steel circle before your eyes (that is a map of where I live). Hit the "Buy" button and pay your US$25 and you have a beautiful pair of earrings. Pay a little more and you have a wall clock.

They write:

By wearing your favorite location on your ears you can remind yourself and friends about a special memory. Places are often associated with memories that helped shape ourselves and the people we know and love. What could be a more thoughtful and personal gift than a key like this to a special memory.

It really is exciting to see technology used in such creative ways. More at FluidForms
