Send email to the computer-averse with Celery
Celery is a fax machine that can receive and send email.
It's designed to make life easy for older folks who don't wish to fiddle around with computers: at the recipient's end, the machine is set up once, then simply prints out emails and photos sent to it. To reply, granny just writes a normal letter in response and feeds it in, printing the name of the recipient at the top so that the machine can figure out who to email it to.
"Even if most of your readers think its a stupid idea, I can assure you one thing, if they gift one of these to Grandma, they'll never need to find stamps and mail a letter ever again," inventor Neil Grabowsky writes in.
I feel vaguely as if we're still trying to get the 1990s right, here, but if it works, it works, right?
