Whenever I get a new email my phone chimes, and a notification pops up on my desktop accompanied by another sound effect. No matter where I am or what I’m doing, I know I have a new email in my inbox within seconds of receiving it. I can’t say the same for my physical mailbox though, and some of the mail I get is just as important as my email – it’s not all sale circulars and car loan offers. Fortunately, with a handful of cheap parts, and a little work, you can put together a device that will notify you every time your mailbox is opened. I guess your mailbox could be opened for reasons other than depositing mail, but chances are you’d want to know about it either way.
