"What happens when you send something by mail? What happens in between you sending it off and someone else receiving it? What people and processes are involved and how many steps does it take?

Those all were questions I was dealing with and wanted to find out. So instead of sitting back I started a simple project to actually see it myself. I put a small camera in a box, build a timer circuit using Arduino and shipped it.

That's as simple as it is. The timer circuit was set to make a 3 sec video every minute and make longer videos while the box was movin: to not miss on the 'interesting' parts."

We here at PostScan Mail appreciate this kind of curiosity for things, especially when it involves postal mail. Reubens interest in what actually goes on with personal mail sheds some light on a simply "A to B" process. We never see  the journey, and sometimes that's the best part.
