Project to preserve extinct languages.

The Rosetta project got its inspiration from the original Rosetta Stone. This project aims at providing a means of deciphering languages that are in danger of becomming, or already are extinct. The amazing thing is that the size of the Rosetta disk created for this project are only about 5.08 centemeters in diameter, and made from a micro-etched nickle alloy. The Rosetta disk contains 27,000 language pages (27 pages for each language), and in the center a map of the earth outlining the origins of the languages.

This is freaking amazing.

Where do I get one?
