Abstract

Email is an essential tool for most of the people. However, the amount of messages, including spam, we receive every day complicates our ability to concentrate on messages we consider important. In this project we design and develop a prototype of an augmented object that notifies users when important mail arrives. The process of design, development and testing is described and discussed in this paper.
