The gold medals for the 2010 Vancouver winter Olympics have been revealed, and they're made from melted down old circuit boards. Because athletes will really appreciate that geeky touch.

The medals, designed by Canuck artists Corrine Hunt and Omer Arbel, are made from the gold, bronze and silver reclaimed from old electronics. They're also laser-etched so no two medals are the same and feature an undulating design meant to invoke the landscape of Vancouver. I can't wait to win one, or at least be forced to hear about them for two weeks of unnecessary media coverage overload. [NotCot via Technabob]
