Back to the grind of searching in the massive archives of the Google Patent Search, we stumbled upon this little item: a postal envelope in the shape of a motorcycle.
Scott Master filed the claim last year, and was awarded the patent last June.
The idea is interesting to say the least, but several problems spring to mind. First of all, there’s not much space to put something in the envelope. Something like a letter, unless the envelope is enormous.
Secondly, when the envelope hits the sorting stations of the Postal system, it’s going to loose parts of the bike, all the edges will probably get torn off.
And last, but not least, will the Postal system accept it?
But, it’s interesting. Would I use it? Maybe... would you?
