Geographically-accurate version of the London underground map
as Boing Boing says: 'London's subway system switched early to an abstract map (PDF), and it became a legendary work of design. It just published an internally-used geographic version of map (PDF), however, for the first time in a century—and it's awesome.'

Yuri Suzuki: London Underground circuit map radio
Japanese designer yuri suzuki has sent designboom images of his 'london underground circuit maps' project developed as part of the designers in residence program at the london design museum, on show until january 13th, 2013. responding to 'thrift' as a theme, suzuki's work explores communication systems in consumer electronics.
a printed circuit board (PCB) is used as a precedent for developing a electrical circuit influenced by harry beck's iconic
london underground map diagrams. by strategically positioning certain speaker, resistor and battery components throughout the map,
users can visually understand the complex networks associated with electricity and how power is generated within a radio.


Beautifully done (via jwz.)
