Reversing the most enduring and ubiquitous, social economic paradigms of speed and efficiency, the Real Snail Mail messaging service uses live snails to carry emails across physical space, making it possible for the first time to communicate anywhere in the world at a snail’s pace. The moment you click “send” on the realsnailmail.net website your message travels at the speed of light to a collection point in the enclosure where it waits for a RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) equipped snail to pass by. Once collected, the message is carried by the snail until it happens to pass by the drop off point and is forwarded to its final destination.
