mapenvelop: post it from the exact place

mapenvelop is a project by beste miray dogan that I like a lot: the inner walls of the envelope are blanketed by a Google map that indicates where the sender's address is. As described by the designer "post it from the exact place".

Why do I blog this an interesting low-tech approach to adding locational information to a message. A sort of locational information that adds subtlety in communication given that a map can be perceived as "richer" than a written address. It would be even more intriguing to have such envelopes for places you visit... you would buy a map of barcelona and pinpoint where you wrote the letter... so that your contact can be aware of where you thought about them. Surely something that is possible with digital communication through location-aware devices but that is even more curious on paper.
