Don’t you just wish there was a way to turn off your email and not have anyone disturb you? Designer Brendan Dawes might just have the answer for us who would love to be disconnected from the technology world just for a bit, or look at e-mail in a completely different fashion. Flicking switches, twisting knobs and seeing glowing lights would make checking and answering e-mails that much more fun and exciting.
Dawes teamed up with MailChimp, creating six different appliances that allow users to check their e-mail in different ways. He is calling them the “Six Monkeys”, referring to the six chimpanzees that were used in linguistic research.
Ham is like a jewelry box for the most important emails you’ve ever received. When unlocked with a key, Ham will print off a copy of the original e-mail received so you can enjoy it for the once again first time.
