It's like a gift right on the stamp

So in the last, say 100 years or so, a lot has changed in the world of technology. And yet, stamps still function the same way they did when they were first introduced. That was, at least, until the introduction of "Intelligent Stamps."

The stamps still function just like any other ordinary postal stamp, but they have a special image patterns on them that allow anyone - the letter's sender or receiver - to access exclusive online content.

If you have an iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or Android phone, you need the Junaio app, which has gained notoriety for its universal acceptance of image-recognition codes.

Once the user scans in a picture of the stamp, he or she will have access to content that the stamp creator designed.

Royal Mail, which is behind the stamp revolution, hopes to make a splash with this new technology over the holiday season, and to do so has created a special collector's line of Wallace & Gromit stamps.

So when you're sending out all those gift cards and small gifts that fit inside an envelope, try some Intelligent Stamps. It's like a present in and of itself!

If you still can't picture how it works, here's a handy YouTube video:
