The advent of email more or less spelled the end of traditional snail mail (and postmen who hate being chased down by dogs would be happy with that news, although it would also mean a threat to their jobs), but for postal services and couriers, sending packages from one place to another would still form a huge part of their revenue. When it comes to the holiday season such as Christmas, it would also translate to big business as parcels are being sent in the mail, with Australia Post offering gift-givers the ability to attach a video message to their parcels for that added touch.

Whenever you pack a gift for friends and family, as the sender, you can stick the Video Stamp that comes in the form of a QR code. When attached to the parcel, the recipient who scans the QR code with a special smartphone app will then be able to check out your pre-recorded personalized video message of up to 15 seconds in length. The video message will be there available for up to 90 days after the time of recording, and should the recipient not be that future forward, they can always log into a web page to check it out. This particular video message can also be shared via Facebook, Twitter and Google+, or even to send it out in an email.
