Full disclosure: I don’t know much about mail sorting/processing machines. Today’s images are from a P*S* reader who assures me the usability of these two specimens is quite different. I can’t testify to that myself, but I can certainly respond to their aesthetics.
An efficiency of form reminiscent of Dieter Rams work. Makes me wish I had huge stacks of mail to send.
It’s easy to imagine something much worse than this, but ask yourself, would you want this on your desk if you could have the other one?
Thanks to Jacob Fleisher for sending these in.
