Vicky Isley & Paul Smith seem to have been pretty bored. So they set up Real Snail Mail.

They have 10 snails fitted with RFID in a tank with 2 RFID units (one for dispatch and one for receiving). You send an email through their site and it's put in a cue. As a snail (1 of 10, more to come) gets close to the dispatch the system checks to see if it has an email or not and gives/waits. The other end of the tank forwards the email if and when the snail gets there.

Obviously you don't want to send birthday cards this way.

Strange, bizarre and yet kind of a cool way to slow down the pace of online life.

I know how long it will take. If just fed it will take 2 days if not been fed but in the process of being fed 1/2 day.
