Now here’s a business card that American Psycho’s Patrick Bateman would kill for (possibly literally): a PCB that, as well as providing personal information, doubles-up as a Stylophone-style synth.

“When it comes to business cards, the entire point is to show off,” says creator Tim Alex Jacobs, who’s explained how the card came about in a lengthy post on his website.
