Give a little something of yourself
So... how does a wedding ring made from your own cultured bone sound?
Why go to Tiffany's for a wedding band when you have one grown from your own bones? That's what five British couples did this spring, starting with a trip to the hospital for a quick jaw biopsy to retrieve bone cells. The idea - a romantic experiment dubbed biojewelry - is the love child of Tobie Kerridge and Nikki Stott, design researchers at the Royal College of Art, and Ian Thompson, a bioengineer at Kings College London.I first read about this this past winter or so - I still think it sounds pretty cool, even if Wired is only now catching up with it... The actual project website can be found here. So, waddaya say Carnacki? How about that as a token of my esteem and gratitude for your gracious invitation to participate in this little digital sideshow of yours? Or would that be a bit... ...excessive?
