Magic nightstand sends, receives email

Having read a @lifehacker tweet this morning mentioning the link between a physically fatter wallet and higher spending, and I thought again of this project that blends the physical and virtual in a beautiful and accessible way. The creator of this nightstand also has a "fat wallet" project, if I'm not mistaken.

As the information age wears on, my guess is that form will matter just as much as it has in the past. As humans, we're wired to appreciate the shapes of things. For woodworkers, like me, objects like this table offer another way to improve and add value to what we already do. Just add a little code and some imagination. Until then, watch this lovely and romantic idea in action.
