The Technological Tacky Tourist, the Digital Postcard

This image was lost some time after publication.

Don't get me wrong—postcards can be cool, but the entire concept behind them just grinds my gears. For example, when my Aunt sends me a postcard from Florida, she probably interprets it as "Wish you were here," while I interpret it as "Aren't you jealous that I am in sunny Florida while you are stuck in freezing Kansas?" Maybe I'm just too bitter, but Stuart Calvery will be adding to my anguish with his latest invention, the Snap + Send postcard. It is a disposable digital camera in the shape of a postcard—take some shots, send 'em off. The design is a conceptual part of the Industrial design exhibit at the University of New South Wales, so don't expect to buy one anytime soon.
