Pinpal is a mailer that can be sent to friends and family, and unfolds into a camera that takes a polaroid picture.

Brooklyn-based graphic designer Dina Cheng developed a pinhole polaroid mailer that can be sent out to friends and family. Pinpal enables people to snail mail their loved ones a camera or polaroid to create a kind of bond that can no longer be found through social media.

It unfolds into a pinhole camera that can take polaroid pictures. The project brings back the gratifying feeling of receiving something in the mail, opening up a letter and actually corresponding with someone. Click through to see images of Cheng's Pinpal project:
