SafeDrop - a safer package delivery invention
Are days of lost packages behind us? Not really, but we might be one step closer to the solution, at least for the local-mail.
[David] managed to create a concept called SafeDrop that could be used by the postal services or local courier delivery agencies for packet delivery. This SafeDrop is actually a locked box filled with electronics that can be unlocked only by the intended packet recipient by scanning the secret barcode. Electric lock is made with servo motor and all electronics are built using the Intel Edison IoT platform.
Maybe it is a hardware overkill at this point, but it sure proves the concept.
