Google Map envelopes

NOW this is what we call lateral thinking. Two students in the Industrial Design program at Syracuse University have invented Google Map envelopes, a concept whereby you beat — or help out — the misdirected postal system by printing out a Google Map as the envelope, showing where the letter is coming from and where it’s going to. What’s more, they want Google to incorporate this function into Gmail, enabling you to send your snail mail directly through the interface itself. Brilliant!
