    I can’t imagine it would work as a dice. Wouldn’t it just fall over? Looks good, though. But I still find it hard to beat my plain $30 Tungsten Carbide wedding ring. Flawless. And inexpensive.

       Maybe you pick a direction and use the number that’s pointing the most in that direction when it falls?

      I’d imagine it would be possible to roll it without falling too, but the direction method might be a little less fiddly.

      You could spin it around a pencil, and drop that.

      My first thought was that you could roll it and it MIGHT stay on its side, but it seems unlikely.  Tungsten rings are pretty awesome, I concur.

       Maybe just don’t look at it, being careful not to “feel” the indents, and turn it a few times on your finger. Then look at the result?

       Yeah, looks to me like you’ll be rolling a zero most of the time.

    You could easily convince me that the headline of this article was auto-created by some sort of Boing Boing Article Generator. It’s the boingboingiest.

    Sorry to say that that is nothing new. Back in 2010 I made a 20 sided ring that works perfectly fine, as it self rights when thrown too (unless you drop it dead, of course)

    Put on finger, cut the finger, roll the finger.
