Record your voice and print a 3D ring

Japanese startup 3D Wave suggests to record your voice and print the encoded voice as a 3D ring (Encode Ring). It’s easy to use – there’s a recorder on the website’s home page (simply use the site translator if you don’t speak japanese!). Once you think of the meaningful (or not really) words you’d like to have translated into a piece of jewelry, you press the “record” button. After that you are suggested to choose the material.
