I recently backed a cool Kickstarter project called Mapwheel, and thought that fellow GIS / mapping people on this list might be interested in it too.
They let you design a custom “toposcope” or map wheel showing the direction and distance of places of interest from the location where you live (or any other location you choose). They then ship you a nicely finished disk made of metal or wood with your design printed on it.
I blogged about it here:
The direct Kickstarter link is here:
I have no affiliation with them, I just think it’s a cool idea and I hope they get their Kickstarter funded!
