I have written several times about my love/hate relationship with email. So I am definitely on the lookout for email management applications and I just came across something interesting. Anymails, a project created by Carolin Horn as part of her thesis, allows you to visualize your received emails as microbes. The objective of this Flash-based project is to offer the user another type of email experience. Unfortunately, it only currently works on a Mac.
Anymails uses a simple system consisting of color, species and microbe maturity making it easy to identify and group email messages visually. You can watch the video (below) to see just what Anymails might look like. Anymails makes email easier to manage by turning it into somewhat of a visual game which makes email a little more entertaining.
