New SLAB500 module: tMail™

Jim Infantino

a trendy new method for not so instant messaging

Watching the new trends in communication is important to us here at SLABmedia. We scrutinize each one we see, to catch which we can use to enhance our web-interface. This one is really exciting. tMail™ - is a web-application, input device & module that combines the communication functionality of e-mail, texting, twittering and blogging, but with a fully-tactile input method that essentially redefines the word "input". The user (or tMailer) first much acquire a new physical "input application module" to get started, but once acquired, it is pretty much automatic, in a "manual" sense of the word "automatic." How it works -------------- The tmail-er uses the new input device / application / module to literally tap out a message on a sheet of dried pulp in the exact same way as they would their computer keyboard. The words appear on the dried pulp by means of a technology called "i-ink" or just "ink". Once it dries, this communication method really starts to show its potential. The words - now fused to the pulp sheet, are rolled out of the device with a satisfying whoosh, and are transported by foot, or by bike to a near by person. That person reads the message just like they would a normal email or text, and can respond to you with their own application input module device pulp stainer whoosher. To get started, send $8999.99 to SLABmedia, and we will send you the application input module tapper manual return whatever in about 5 to 800,000 business days. tMail™ the future of communication.
