Mastercard will engrave this Rugby World Cup trophy in real time

THE WORK: 'Player of the match trophy' by MasterCard.

For the Rugby World Cup 2019, Mastercard has unveiled an origami-inspired Player of the Match trophy that will be finished with in-the-moment laser etching reflecting actual highlights from the match—selected based on fan activity on social media and commentary from official RWC 2019 sources.

The design is inspired by the work of Dr Jun Mitani, a computer graphics researcher who is a professor of Information and Systems at the University of Tsukuba.
