Ciphering is a personalised ring which physical form encodes numbers of your choosing. The message becomes visible only when you take the ring off your finger and either shine light, or look through it in a correct angle. Your input of four numbers and four letters are fed to an algorithm that generates the unique shape. You enter date, intials, ring size and material of choice and then a 3D model is individually generated!
Ciphering is a part of a research project between the Berlin University of the Arts and the Technical University Berlin, funded by the Einsteinstiftung under hybrid platform lead by fellow MIT Media Lab friend Professor Jussi Ängeslevä.
