Tableau: Magic Messenger Drawer

by Lambert Varias

From the same guy that cooked up the Proverbial Wallets comes a magical drawer that can transport messages to and from the Internet. John Kestner calls his creation the Tableau, and like the Proverbial Wallets, it adds a physical factor to digital processes. To “send” a message or object, all you have to do is place it inside the drawer; likewise if you receive something from the Internet, check the drawer and it’ll be there for you. It’s a magic!

Or not. Actually the Tableau hides a scanner and a printer; the former is used to digitize what you want to send, and the latter prints what you receive.

If the Tableau was real, I imagine it would be quite tedious to use it. Also if you receive a lot of stuff, you’ll run out of ink before you know it. Still, the concept is quite charming and magical. I can imagine myself sending secret messages from one Tableau to another. It kind of reminds me of the inter-universe typewriter in Fringe. Check out Kestner’s website for more info.

    Um, did he actually build anything, or is that just a regular dresser drawer?
