SMS Texting Celebrates 20 Years with Paper

Can you remember a time before text messaging? The relatively new invention was launched in 1992, but it’s hard to remember a time when this wasn’t one of our primary forms of communication. To celebrate 20 years, notebook innovator Moleskine has launched a special edition analog SMS text message. The tiny notebook comes with a cover launching pad and tiny messages such as “I Love You” and “Call Me” which can be folded up and launched via slingshot across a room. For us it recalls the schoolroom days when we’d get busted for writing a note and passing it to a friend. It’s a fun idea to celebrate a form of technology we now take for granted, and a great gift for anyone in your life with a smartphone addiction.
