MapEnvelope and the London Eye

MapEnvelope is an interesting and simple puff of a guy with a great taste for creativity.

If you ever wanted to surprise by saying where you are in a different style, MapEnvelope as its name says, generates an envelope with the printed map.

You only need to enter the location, for example:

And a Google Maps view is automatically displayed at that location, right over the London Eye. Then a custom message can be placed:

Losing a flight in London has compensation if you ride the London Eye.

Finally the Preview button, to view and print the sheet.

Then, it is only cut by the edge and bend in the dotted lines as shown in the image taken from the web.

About the London Eye


Map envelope

The London Eye or Millennium Wheel is that gigantic revolving ring, which is on the River Thames in London. Getting there is not complicated, from London Heathrow airport you only have to pay for a subway train day (14 pounds), take it at terminal 5, make a change from blue to gray line and get off at Westminster. Round trip can take less than two hours.

Enter costs 15 Pounds, including a previous three-dimensional show and photo for the souvenir if you want to pay the extra 10 Pounds.

The wheel does not stop, unless disabled persons are entering. As it rotates down, it gives time for people to come down from the bubble, some guys with security sensors enter and the new 15 people enter as well. The full loop takes about 35 minutes.

Impressive, maybe others really enjoy the view, and the photos. On this side we enjoy the ingenuity of suspending a bicycle wheel weighing 1,700 tons at a height of 135 meters on radial cables.
