Google Maps Envelopes


I love getting mail. There is something about exciting about finding a personalised letter in your mailbox and ripping it open to see who it’s from.

Well it turns out I am not the only one who is nostalgic for the days of snail mail. Industrial designers Rahul Mahtani and Yofred Moik have recently conceptualized the addition of a “Send Envelope” button that would enable users to quickly send a physical letter — rather than an e-mail — with spiffy Google Maps-esque packaging.

“Once a person clicks the “Send Envelope” button, Google would print and deliver an e-mail via the post for a small fee. The return address label is in a bubble at their start of a route traced on the map envelope, while the destination is in the address bubble at the end of the route. Between the two is the route that the letter takes to get there.”
