USPS Gets a Virtual Box Simulator to Help You With Your Shipping Needs

USPS's Virtual Box Simulator: A Bit Tricky, Yet Kinda Amazing

So I guess someone (ahem, the United States Postal Service) was reading my tweets last week when I complained about the complicated post office experience. OK, so maybe they were already trying to simplify the entire shipping process before my rant, but whatever the case, I'm just glad they whipped up this handy online tool! Now if you want to figure out what size of shipping box you need for a parcel or package, you can use the USPS Virtual Box Simulator! All you have to do is go to the site, print the USPS eagle image on a piece of paper, turn on your webcam (either external or builtin), then launch the simulator and hold the eagle icon up to your camera so you can see if the box will fit all of your goods!
