App een Oma is a digital mailbox that instantly translates digital messages into physical postcards and vice versa. Handwritten letters are scanned and sent to the right person through an address stamp; text messages come out as printed postcards. Our aim is to bridge the gap between traditional correspondence and digital communication, thereby increasing the accessibility of digital services for user groups that have difficulties using modern human-machine interfaces.
