And Vinyly turns your ashes into a playable record. From

We have heard of 3D printed records, being printed in clear resin on a professional 3D printer. The rise of 3D printing, offers intriguing possibility of printing customized vinyl records. A UK company called And Vinyly offers music fans an interesting post-death “alternative”: get your ashes pressed into a vinyl record using 3D printing technology.

And Vinyly’s service was launched in 2009 under the guidance of British entrepreneur Jason Leach. It offers an array of services, and even accept cremated pet remains. For £3,000 (EUR3,485 / USD4,586) And Vinyly will take your ashes and press them into a record. The audio must be supplied by you, it can be music, a vocal recording or complete silence to let loved ones hear your pops and crackles.

Besides this basic package, you can also order your own sleeve artwork designed by either National Portrait Gallery painter James Hague or street artist Paul Insect, or have your record distributed through reputable vinyl stores worldwide.

Though Leach said that they have received “hundreds” of enquiries, so far And Vinyly has only four clients who used their service, “including a DJ who had his played at his favourite club as part of his dying wishes and an Amsterdam artist named Francesca Grilli who had a classical score specifically written for her passing.”

But if you decide to use their service, remember your audio should be no more than 24 minutes (12 minutes on each side), and And Vinyly says also they are not responsible for any copyright violations committed by material you supply – so choose carefully, there is no way you can change your mind.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!

The Adafruit Learning System has dozens of great tools to get you well on your way to creating incredible works of engineering, interactive art, and design with your 3D printer! If you’ve made a cool project that combines 3D printing and electronics, be sure to let us know, and we’ll feature it here!

Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here:
