Intel Postcards From The Future

Email, Facebook, Twitter…who has time to make an effort with personalized, hand-written messages anymore? Moderati’s Intel-sponsored app has an interesting solution to this sad state of affairs: Postcards From The Future! That is, you can use this app to make and send postcards, but with a futuristic flair. Postcards From The Future uses your device’s camera, so if you’re an iPod Touch owner, be sure to have a photo of the person you want to use as backdrop.

Intel Postcards From The Future

The first step is to pick one of two themes, each presided over by two different types of robots: flatter*e bots and doodle bots. As you can imagine, the former lavishes compliments while the latter graffiti’s over your photo. Both robots have at least three varied statements or actions, so it would help to know which photo you’ll be using beforehand. After choosing the message, you’ll get to use the camera for the postcard’s big picture, or you can grab a photo from the Photo Album. Position and zoom the photo at will; the app will show you where the bots (or their handiwork) will be, so you can adjust accordingly. Once you’re done, a preview of the animated postcard will play, and then you can save the postcard to the app as well as send it out through email, Facebook, or Twitter.

Intel Postcards From The Future

Postcards From The Future is utterly adorable–and free! However, this also means that content doesn’t really get updated, and I’m definitely wanting more. More variety, more options, more choices. The messages and graffiti are all people-related (although if you wanted to insert your dog, I guess it could work)–what if I wanted to send a postcard with a nice background and a bot doing cartwheels? Also, I dislike that there is no undo or edit button while you’re in the process of making a postcard. It is fantastically designed, however (the bots are so cute!), in ultra-soothing blue and with instructions that can’t possibly be misinterpreted. Considering that it’s for free, this is a pretty sophisticated app, and I can’t help but to wish for more.
