This hidden camera adventure through the postal system, From A to B, began when Ruben van der Vleuten wanted to know, ”What happens when you send something by mail?”
So instead of sitting back I started a simple project to actually see it myself. I put a small camera in a box, build a timer circuit using Arduino and shipped it.
That’s as simple as it is. The timer circuit was set to make a 3 sec video every minute and make longer videos while the box was movin: to not miss on the ‘interesting’ parts.
…like conveyor belts! We love videos like this, not only because we get to see from a perspective that we’ve never seen before, but because it would make a great DIY project.
Check out van der Vleuten’s site to see more about the box, its innerworkings, and a highlights video with some real time clips.
A short clip from Italian television in 1960, I Can’t Get Started + Manteca by Dizzy Gillespie on trumpet, Leo Wright on alto sax, Junior Mance on piano, Art Davis on bass and Teddy Stewart on drums.
The cheeks make their first appearance just after the 50s mark and really get going at 2 minutes and again at 4m50s.

Both kids were laughing as they watched the rabbits journey across all of the animals that floated by, and we’ve been humming the music ever since. Clearly we loved this video. If you do, too, you might also enjoy one of our favorite books, Wonder Bear by Tao Nyeu, a Tinybop recommendation.
