'Tableau: Physical Email' Prints TwitPics and Sends Tweets

I never thought a nightstand could send a tweet until I saw John Kestner's 'Tableau: Physical Email.' 'Tableau' is a nightstand that has been set up to print and send TwitPics and tweets.

'Tableau: Physical Email' scans and uploads tweets or pictures directly to your account. When there is action in your inbox, the knob on the drawer will glow indicating a new TwitPic has just been printed out. If you're wondering why someone would go through the trouble of designing a tweeting nightstand, Kestner says he wanted to create an "anti-computer experience."
