U.S. Postal Services Launches Virtual Box Simulator

The United States Postal Service recently launched an augmented reality application (originally on prioritymail.com but no longer available) that simulates a virtual box for your shipment. The application projects a “hologram” of a shipping box over an item that the user holds up to the computer’s webcam. It remains to be seen how useful and accurate the application is, but it definitely wows for its “cool” factor. The video below shows how it works.
