electronic/mechanical/ LED-Radio-Decoder Wedding rings?
my future wife and I are looking for some fancy wedding rings. Well, we're both geeks, so it should be something that involves electricity or a nifty function ;-)
Unfortunaly she's allergic to some metal components often used in steel or gold/silver, so titan or something like that would be more suitable. Aluminum or some plastics would work too, i guess.
Thats the problem right there. Even if we'd find something online or a store that makes rings, they'll probably not work with titan since its harder to work with.
I found some LED rings at
but as allways the problem is the metal and of course power.
A battery would either have to be replacable or rechargable ;D (capacitor? but even a low current led wont even flash up with a tiny capacitor?)
A solarcell so tiny it'll fit ontop of a ring without looking redicoulus would not be efficient enough I'dd guess.
Of course, as previously stated, it could be something mechanical (as http://www.switzerwatch.com/product_info.php?language=en&viID=30&products_id=1297 for example)
A nifty idea would be if the rings would actually do something when brought together (magnetism, induction, mechanism).
I also had the idea of the rings morsing the date every few minutes on radio, much like http://www.mcmanis.com/chuck/robotics/projects/eelb.html
if all fails we'll just look into something cool to engrave (there are rings with laser engraved fingerprints as example) or we'll just embed a electronic part such as a resitor with a value representing the day we've met or such.
ANY (cool) ideas apreceated, especialy about LEDs, sources/shops, adresses to shops customizing, and so on (but please, nothing over 50-200 bucks, we're not rich).
I hope you guys / gals dont start to laugh at us now. We cant help it. We just want something unique and not a golden ring with some diamond. Some people really have rings that look ugly! Well, geeky LEDs do too, but at least they do something ;-)
