When I was in labor with Hank, I asked for a printout of his heartbeat, so I could have it engraved on a ring later (much like the Pulse Ring I listed on Mighty Goods a few years ago). Design incorporating sound is everywhere lately. Here’s a few more examples.
-The Sound Advice Project (on Mighty Goods) makes a bracelet from your voice recording.
–Sakurako Shimizu’s Waveform Series makes rings, brooches, bracelets, cufflinks and more by cutting sound-wave replicas out of metal.
–Sounds Butter Interactive Design did a prototype of a sewing machine that represents sound waves through stitch pattern. (Pretty sure I’ve linked to that before)
-The Sonic Waves typeface (pictured above) let’s you “play” a phrase or message. Click through for a quicktime demo.

How cool. Oh the gifts I could give!
Very cool stuff!! Did not know about this.
Fun for the whole family, Make a non-newtonian fluid and place on the speakers (or a covered speaker) and watch it dance.
I tried to contact the company that sells the Pulse ring about a year ago (via email and phone) but never received a response. Any ideas?
Sorry, Kimberly. I have no idea.
Why didn’t I think to do that with both my kids? It’s such a great idea. Even just to have in their baby books.
