Upcycled Olympic Medals?

Leave it up to the Canadians. The 2010 Winter Olympics to be held in Vancouver will be honoring Olympic athletes with upcycled medals made out of recycled circuit boards. The medals are designed by Canadian artists Corrine Hunt and Omer Arbel and are laser etched onto an undulating shape that mirrors the landscape of the host city. For more on the making of the these medals go here.
