AR post stamps

rmail

As the world moves forward Royal Mail launches the first ‘intelligent’ post stamp. Not only it is a good example of how AR is becoming a widely used tool to communicate information, but also a good example of how new technology can fit perfectly within traditional ways of communication.

Should we all go to the post office now, get one of them and spend a few minutes writing a ‘real’ letter?

  • I can understand how the appeal of writing a letter has waned in the eyes of youth, maybe this will bring back some of the excitement back to traditional letter writing (although it was never truly gone in my view). Hopefully these stamps aren’t that expensive, then they’ll spread like wildfire! Simple = ubiquitous.
