Cool Tool to Help with Shipping

Catching up on my reading and I came across a neat idea from our postal service. The US Postal Service has created a new augmented reality web tool, called the Virtual Box Simulator, to promote the fact that priority Mail Flat Rate boxes can make shipping easier. With the tool, consumers can hold an object in front of a webcam to create a 3D hologram and determine the appropriate Flat Rate box for shipping items. Then the user can select various boxes to see how they compare to the size of the item they want to ship. – This is all part of the “A Simpler Way to Ship” campaign site at – This sounds like a great way to get the right box for shipping your holiday gift items to your loved ones everywhere.
