Namae Machine

Tourist card to give away and make friends!


The Namae-machine is a terminal that lets you input the personal information of your choice to have it printed out on a Namae-card (a business card format).

When you are out and about in Japan, you can use the Namae-card to introduce yourself to new friends such as people who help you in the street and friendly shopowners!!

Exchange cards and carry home a physical memory!
Maybe somehow the cards will be part of serendipiditous meetings - folding into your network!
