The last time I stuck a stamp on an envelope was more than a year ago. Email has now largely replaced postal (snail) mail but Britain’s Royal Mail clearly thinks otherwise.
They are laying claim to the world’s first ‘Intelligent Stamp’ through their recent release of the Great British Railways Special Stamps edition.
The Intelligent Stamp is the first to work with image recognition technology, and can be accessed on an iPhone or Android Smartphone via the Junaio application. The app. contains a Royal Mail channel which activates the phone’s camera and launches the exclusive online content, featuring Bernard Cribbins reading W H Auden‘s poem, Night Mail.
Get the app. at iTunes and Android Market for free.
