Royal Mail make intelligent stamp
The Royal Mail have finally gone and done the thing we've all been yearning for. We've waited years, but at last, it is here. Ladies and gentlefolk, the Royal Mail has made an intelligent stamp.
We know that you lot have been itching for something like this. We've had millions of emails stating that you've long stared a postage stamps and wanted something more from them. Even our editor, Mr Dawson, has been known to scratch away at them in an attempt to find hidden extras inside.
WELL WAIT NO LONGER!
The Royal Mail's latest stamp works with image recognition technology, which means that, when you scan it with your smartphone, you get a whole bunch of useless shit.
The new stamp, which is part of the Royal Mail's Great British Railways edition, will launch online content via smartphones when you scan them via the Junaio application (which you can get from the Android/iTunes markets for free, if you're interested).
The Royal Mail's Philip Parker told the BBC: "This is the first time a national postal service has used this kind of technology on their stamps and we're very excited to be bringing intelligent stamps to the nation's post.
"Through Intelligent Stamp technology, our stamps will open up to a whole new world of information, interest and fun to collectors and the millions of people who will receive them on letters in the coming months alike."
It's no pissing use if the letter never even reaches our houses or turns up so late that we've developed newer technology for our future-phones, eh?
