Help me find a nerdy-cool trophy to recognize a volunteer!

I'm looking for a cool trophy to recognize someone's contributions to a techy volunteer organization.

I need to recognize a volunteer's substantial contributions to the organization and execution of a large local event that's part of a nationwide nonprofit. It's engineering and science-oriented; this particular individual's background is biomedicine, though the event is focused on robotics. (It's FIRST, for anyone who knows)

There exists a trophy for a separate recognition that is a Mobius strip ball bearing sculpture. It is seriously awesome. I'm looking for something on par with this awesomeness. Anyone know of something? I've poked around Etsy but haven't really been able to find something; maybe I'm using the wrong search terms. I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Best answer: Look into 3-D printed sculptures. Most are representations of "Pure Mathematics". I like the work of Bathsheba Grossman.

Laser etched leatherman is what immediately leaps to mind here, but if you want a trophy...

I might look at Make magazine's blog and Flickr pool and see if anyone out there is doing some kind of work that you like. Contact the artist and see it you can work something out with them.

The work of Bathsheba Grossman deserves an FPP!
