…Camera Mail takes you inside the post office?

Camera Mail

Kyle Van Horn’s Camera Mail idea is an interesting one: He sends a disposable camera through the mail attached to a postcard and asks the postal workers to take pictures along the package’s journey.

    On November 30th, 2003, an oversized postcard holding one disposable camera and a roll of 800 ASA, 27-exposure film was mailed from Lafayette, IN to Santa Monica, CA. A few days later, the postman knocked on the door of my friend and found him answering in his underwear. He did not understand the statement: “The Post Master wants to know why you are mailing cameras.” as he had no prior knowledge of this delivery. Approximately 14 of the 27 shots arrived intact, all of which were taken at the Lafayette post office.

…Stranger photos have happened?

Stranger PhotosJay from The Plug created an interesting project called Stranger Photos Have Happened where he tied a disposable camera to a bench with a sign reading:

    Good Afternoon,

    I attached this camera to the bench so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I’ll be back later this evening to pick it up.

Later that day, he did in fact go pick the camera up, and after developing the film, he posted the pics to his site for the world to see.

…Flashpoint shares your message?


Flashpoint is a hack that turns a disposable camera into a message delivery system.

By rewiring the flash and setting up an automatic trigger (among the more complicated steps), you can create a projector that will shine your thoughts on anything within range.
