Real Snail Mail™

Snail Mail [1]

‘RealSnailMail is a research project developed by Vicky Isley and Paul Smith (aka boredomresearch) at the National Centre for Computer Animation, Bournemouth University. The worlds first messaging service to use real snails harnesses the potential of diminutive molluscs to deliver email messages. Your message travels at the speed of light to our collection point where it waits….. and waits for a RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) equipped snail to pass by. Once collected your message is lugged around on the back of a snail until such time as it happens by the dispatch point and is finally forwarded to its recipient.’ [2]
