People may not see the value of the BlackBox by Joe Doucet at first, but it could prove very useful when it comes to backing up important electronic conversations in a non-electronic fashion. It allows people to print past SMS and IM messages via a standard, noncarbon receipt printing system.
Although the BlackBox by Joe Doucet would be used more for sentimental purposes than practical ones, it can really foster a deeper appreciation for a loved one's words. Emails and texts messages often become buried under newer conversations, or simply deleted in order to free up space. BlackBox by Joe Doucet provides a traditional, convenient and easy solution to keeping these messages on hand. It even prints out a message twice so that the user can share that conversation with another.
