Get in Gear

This is seriously cool.

Things - Adam Mayer Digitally Designed Geared Business Cards from Bre Pettis on Vimeo.

Digital designer Adam Mayer created paper business cards with working gears. In the video, Mayer presents two prototypes. I love the first design: it has an interactive element that requires the recipient to turn the gears in order to see the contact information. It reminds me of the pop-up books I had as a kid where you could move the pieces and help tell the story.

I think a design like this could only really work for an independent firm or for someone in the design industry, but it is very cool regardless.

Check out the instructions for the geared card and the planetary gear card at Bre Pettis's Thingiverse.
