Designer: Kim Wright

'Snail mail' is finally receiving an upgrade, thanks to the development of 'RoboPost' the robotic mailbox. RoboPost will look like an ordinary mailbox, but with one major difference: after the mail is delivered, it will lower itself from its stake and automatically drive up to its charging base near your doorstep. From here, you can easily retrieve the mail or place outgoing letters into the mailbox. After it has recharged its batteries, RoboPost automatically returns to its stake at the end of your driveway.
