How MailSnail works
We've found that we all have a problem of forgetting to check our mail boxes and thus often missing an important letter or checking them too often.
What it does
Mailsnail informs you when there is a letter in the mailbox; by sending a notification that you have a new letter in your mailbox to you as a tweet, email or displaying it on the screen of a smart coffee mug. In addition, we did some work on the coffee mug and taught it to display the temperature of the drink inside it. Just to make it extra awesome.
How we built it
We used python with flask over nginx for backend, integrating twilio and twitter apis for additional functionality. html/css for front end, with java/xml android prototyping front end for the sensor systems.
