Vancouver 2010 Olympic Medals Made From Recycled Circuit Boards

Vancouver's Olympic Medals Are Geeky and Green!

Last week, the Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympic Games revealed the designs for the gold, silver, and bronze Olympic Medals, and it turns out they have a geeky touch. The medals, designed by Canadian artists, are made from recycled materials from used electronics — 6.8 metric tons of circuit board diverted from landfills.

The medals are the first to feature a curved design, and are individually laser etched — no two are the same. I love the Olympics even more now!

I like them. I know a lot of people are complaining about the curved design but I like how it makes them unique. They are much better then the Olympic toke, I mean torch this year.
