The NSA's got nothing on this startup, which wants to intercept, scan, digitize, and help organize all mail before you ever see it in your physical mailbox. It’s a logistical nightmare. But is there enough value in the “mail graph” to justify it?
How do they get into all those mailboxes? “We came up with this idea of the user taking a picture of the key using a cell phone and emailing it in,” says the CTO. “We’ve written some software, and with some light user-interaction, can generate a code for a key. We have a key machine--it only takes a couple of minutes.” That hack and more are what's driving Austin's most insane startup.
