Get ready to turn your top tunes into physical art. Shapeways, a 3D printing company, introduced its latest project, Vibe, at SXSW last weekend.
Vibe is a custom iPhone case created from your favorite sound from SoundCloud. It’s an ingenious use of the SoundCloud API, which works in conjunction with the Shapeways on-demand 3D printing technology.
Just connect your SoundCloud account to Shapeways, select your favorite track and then pick the area of the song you want to use. The sound waves themselves create the design pattern.
The Vibe is available in either black or white for $19.99 (the price will soon go up to $24.99).
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind iPhone case, The Vibe might just fit the bill.
