Cufflinks are an old classic, but Shapeway is changing their design in very cool ways with their new 3D design.
The 3D cufflinks are made of metal, and use 3D Rapid Prototyping technology to make the effect. It seems like a great gift for the less traditional man. The 3D metal cufflinks cost $50 on the Shapeway website.
Implications - Cufflinks used to be a bland menswear accessory, but modern cufflinks express the wearer's personality. In a corporate setting, clever cufflinks can reinforce a man's personal brand or business philosophy; in a personal setting, cheeky cufflinks may form a conversation starter. By creating tactile cufflinks that turn traditional designs on their head, menswear manufacturers revive a dying accessory.
