2010 Vancouver Olympic Medals Made From Old Circuit Boards

26Oct09

Is it just me or are the designs for Olympic medals getting more and more kickass? Sure they’re extremely contemporary in design, but the medals for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games look nerd-tastic.

Not only are the medals not flat, but they made from old circuit boards. OLD CIRCUIT BOARDS. The gold, silver and bronze are salvaged from the old boards and then crafted to each medal. Each medal is laser etched with a unique design so that no two medals are exactly alike. Wicked doesn’t even begin to describe them. These are beautiful.

    this is pretty cool. very beautiful. can’t believe it really. in one of the crappy movies i’ve seen….”if i cut off my arm, can i enter the special olympics…i would really love to win one of those metals!”

  2. They’re very original in their design. I’d like to see them for real as it’s hard to understand how good/bad they really are!

    It’s much better than the dvd-rom design they had at Turin but not as cool as the jade inlaid design at Beijing.

  4. i love to read tech blogs because i am a technology addict, always looking for new hi tech stuffs ::
