3D-printed object is shaped by a three-second audio recording

Encode Ring, a Japanese tech startup, is using 3D printing technology to craft tangible representations of consumers’ vocals in the form of solid metal rings. To get a personalized ring, customers upload an audio file and select their size and metal preferences. The company then converts the file into a metal ring that depicts a three-second-long voice message.

The rings are available in a number of metal options, including steel, gold-plated, premium silver and solid platinum. The prices vary accordingly, with a steel ring costing $120 and a platinum one $1,240.
