With 'loci', travelers can display special trips with a physical memento of the flights taken.

Travelers now have a new way to commemorate special journeys, in the form of a 3D sculpture of the flights taken. These mementos, called ‘loci‘, are created through software designed by Netherlands-based interaction and sound designer Andrew Spitz. Users can input flight data manually or automatically through a platform such as Tripit or Foursquare. Based on this flight information, the software generates a file for 3D printing, along with a card on which the loci is mounted, which details the title of the trip, the airports visited, total distance traveled and the number of flights taken. The designer intends for these sculptures to spur “recollection, reflection and conversation about their travels.”

In the future, Spitz hopes to integrate loci into ‘Flying‘, a mobile app he co-created, which is currently in beta. This app aims to “make the act of flying feel special again”, according to the app’s website.
