SendMeHome lets you to assign a unique code, called a SendMeHome ID, to any physical item. We are launching our newest feature, Stories, which connects a group of people through an item as it travels the globe. Social networks such as Facebook mainly involve users communicating with their ‘friends’, SendMeHome is unique because it uses a real-world object to tell a story that enables interaction between new and like-minded people who may otherwise have never known of each other’s existence.
Our beta users have already created stories to write a collaborative novel, share cooking tips, discuss political events, and even transport a statue to Easter Island.
The site uses GWT components and integrates with services such as good ole Google Maps. You can check out a story. Having a code associated to items is a lot of fun (read: Webkinz) and seems to be something that can be useful.
