Mail-E – A mail-checker bot by Student

This has made the rounds on the Internet the past few weeks, but I still think it is pretty interesting (and cute!).

Built by a Frenchman under the alias TotoroYamada, it is a paperbot which monitors your email-account. When you receive a new mail, it does a little dance. It’s a classic combination of fun and function. It is easy to just dismiss these kinds of things, but I do believe there is a place for them in the future – however, their exact use and form may not be know to us now.

If you are interested in how it was built and what it looks like under the paper (skin?), go to this website: http://letsmakerobots.com/node/11086 .
