I’m not a big jewellery guy. When I see a rapper donning some bling I just think ‘really?’ but a funky new website called meshu has made me think about jewellery in a whole new way.
San Francisco start up meshu turns your Foursquare check-ins into jewellery designs. Sign in, select your design based on a roamed country or region and then place your order. Available pieces include earrings, necklaces and cufflinks. Prices range from US$75-150 and your new bling can be made in a variety of materials including acrylic, wood, nylon and silver.
Despite the permission issue, wouldn’t it be great if you could create jewellery based on your wife’s/lover’s/partner’s check-ins? Perhaps this is in the pipeline for meshu.
Sure, this is a niche application of sexy data and 3D printing but it highlights the opportunities for how users and brands could utilise data in fun ways.
