Here’s a Kickstarter project I not only recommend, but I’m also a backer. The project comes from Caltech physicist Sameer Walavalkar; he is looking to raise $50,000 to create silicon nanostructures that can represent portraits, pictures, text and are all etched into a variety of objects. The etchings can be done on silicon, gold, sapphire, metals, which can then be mounted and framed as one of a kind art, or given as gifts.
I hope this project gets fully funded, I plan on having a picture of my cats etched and it’ll be a gift for my wife. 🙂
