Michelle Ott’s Postcard Machine

Picture 8.png
At Maker Faire this weekend I got to enjoy the Postcard Machine by Michelle Ott in the Craft Zone. Above is a video from the Renegade Craft Faire in Chicago, since my video didn’t come out at nice. Michelle sits in the “machine” making bleepy noises while you select your postcard and insert cash into the slot. You get a lot more than a postcard; you get a spectacularly crafted performance.

    I got the chance to use the postcard vending machine this weekend, and it was perhaps one of the highlights of the day….
    The postcard is charming- and her boop-boop’ing
    is still making me and the boyfriend giggle!
