A student team on a three-week creative problem solving course at Hyper Island in Manchester, UK came up with the idea to move the queue outside of the Post Office so customers can do what they need to in their own time.

Queue Hacker was developed for the UK Post Office, from a brief delivered by the agency Dare. The students (Richard Trovatten, Paulo Yanaguizawa, Hanna Mejia Beaton, Leo Senra, and Thomas John Clegg)┬ádeveloped the idea for a real-time ticket app that allows customers to browse and order tickets wherever they are and lets them know how long it will be before they’re next in line. The video below illustrates their solution:
