Preserve Tweets or Texts as Cuneiform on Clay Tablets: Dumb Cuneiform

by Lambert Varias

Here’s a fun gift for archeology and history buffs. Dumb Cuneiform turns English tweets or any message with 140 characters or less into cuneiform inscriptions on actual clay tablets. Your thoughts on pumpkin spice will be immortalized. And then promptly forgotten, because researchers will easily figure out that the anachronistic scratches are from 2015 AD.

For $20 (USD), Dumb Cuneiform will (supposedly) translate your message into Old Persian cuneiform, carve the translation into a lump of clay and then dry and fire the tablet before shipping it to you.

It’s a shame it doesn’t preserve emojis and photos. I guess I’ll just have to paste screenshots of Paul Pierce’s Mona Lisas on rocks.
