Italian designer Francesco Mugnai posted a great collection of 22 unusual mailboxes, of which seven geeky favorites are shown here. The Power Mac G4 takes the cake because of its double entendre. Suddenly snail mail has all new appeal. The X-Wing mailbox below was made by MAKE community member Craig Smith (and mined from our blog).

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    Years ago in our town, a family named Bullock had a mailbox that was a covered wagon pulled by oxen (bullocks).

  2. My mailbox seems so boring now. I have to do something about that…
