Chicago-based Life Tokens, lets consumers express their emotions via coded tokens that are sent anonymously through the mail, and that link to personal online messages, reports trendspotter Springwise.

Each token features a graphic on the front that encapsulates a specific emotion, and a 6-digit code on the back that, when entered by the recipient on Life Tokens’ website, reveals the identity of the sender along with a personal message.

Life Tokens sent within the United States are priced at USD 5 which includes domestic shipping. International shipping is also available.

In an era dominated by electronic communication, consumers are increasingly embracing concepts that facilitate tangible ‘real world’ connections. One to emulate on a niche basis, such as catering for business users, marketing initiatives, or perhaps with a naughty twist?
