(Pic) Kaoiro Emoticon Stamp
A stamp designed in Japan lets users configure symbols to communicate using the digital language on paper.
Designers from the Japanese design firm Gung have developed Kaoiro, an emoticon stamp. Kaoiro literally translates to “facial expression.” The object is a physical manifestation of the Japanese society’s obsessive use of emoticons in mobile communication. Users can configure a combination of oft-used symbols to stamp emoticons onto paper.
