When HEYHEYHEY, an off-beat design studio based in the Netherlands, came up with their first Melvin in late 2010 - they built it large to captivate a large audience. After its initial success, companies and festivals enquired about its availability to do a show. Nonetheless, Melvin was gigantic and simply too expensive to rebuild. It was early 2012 that HEYHEYHEY, with an abundance of time, decided to challenge themselves once again. Further reducing their boundaries, they decided to produce a second Rube Goldberg machine that 'sends' its own postcards and interacts (in some way) with the people around it. Like a proper traveler, one could say.
