Guess what time it is? It’s time to go postal. Got a bunch of packages in the mail from you guys and now it’s my turn to open them up and guess what the heck is inside. Now, if you have an idea of something that you might like to send in, I’d love to see what it is. So the address is right there in the description and next video will be your stuff. [music plays] Oh, there’s a note! Ben, would you like to have a look? BEN: Hi Tommy. Enjoy your gift. You’ve done so much to teach others what it is like being blind. Grant from Fort Worth, Texas. Fort Worth, Texas.
TOMMY: I’m trying to feel inside and I feel something down here. This is about the only part that sort of sticks out though. So I have to really open it to see what’s inside. So now… wow, what the? Oh, wait a minute! This is a plane of some sort I’m going guess because I feel like these are wings here. I feel like this might be maybe a propeller or something and there are wheels on the bottom here. And the back I don’t quite know. I feel like that’s almost a switch or something. So, therefore I’m going to guess that is a plane of some sort. Final answer.
BEN: You are correct! TOMMY: Hey!
BEN: Grant has sent you an American Airlines die metal plane. So what you thought was the propeller is the tail of the plane.
TOMMY: Oh, it’s backwards? BEN: Right, and the front which is your right hand is the cockpit.
TOMMY: That makes sense. Oh, wow. Is a plane generally round like that. You know, cylindrical? BEN: Yes.
TOMMY: Wow, that’s cool. Well, thank goodness it’s not a United One. [laughs] [music plays] Okay, this is from Owen in Charlotte, North Carolina. And this seems to be a cube. Oh! But it’s magnetic. I don’t know if it’s a Rubix cube. But it’s some sort of magnetic cube. Hold on a second. Is this dice? Is this a die? And the pieces come apart like this? And then do these two come apart — it’s a whole bunch of die or dice. I’m completely stumped. All the pieces come apart. And they come apart this way. And then I can pull these two apart like this. And then I can pull these two apart like this. It’s not a Rubix cube. It’s not a Magic Cube. I would call it a Magnetic Cube. BEN: Okay, on the box there’s a company that’s crossed called MagneticCube.com. So I would say that you’re — TOMMY: Oh! I nailed it.
BEN: That’s the Magnetic Cube. It’s works like a Rubix Cube but made entirely of dice and magnets.
TOMMY: Owen in Charlotte. This is awesome. Thank you so much for sending this in. I appreciate –0
[box hits light] [music plays] Right off the bat I feel like this is some cable. And I don’t know who sent this but thank you so much for doing it. Is that USB — that’s not really USB though, is it? Is that um… is that lightening? I have not seen these before but it looks like a nice piece of cable.
BEN: What’s your final answer?
TOMMY: I’ll say lightening. BEN: The correct answer is not lightening. TOMMY: Ohhhh!
BEN: The correct answer is an HDMI cable. TOMMY: Apparently I’ve never seen one of these. [music plays] Would you look at that? There’s braille inside. Is that all that’s inside. Let’s look for the money or something. No! [laughs] This is a braille note from Wesley in Gainesville, Florida. It’s says, “Dear Tommy, I saw that you got a PO box and so I hopped on Amazon.com and bought a stylus and a board set.” [gasp] Oh my god. So he’s wondering… “Did you use this in class to take notes?” I never took notes in class, sir. I was too busy sleeping. “I find it pretty difficult to use but the farther I get the faster it is…” Holy smokes! So he taught himself braille and has written a note. This is so impressive. “I wanted to thank you for your videos. They always brighten my day.” Isn’t that nice. “I wish you health and happiness. Sincerely, Wesley.” And this is even the right kind of paper so for braille you need a bit of a thicker paper so it can handle the puncturing of it, right. So this is I think 67 pound paper. That is so cool, Wesley. Good for you. Thank you very much. [music plays] This one it looks like is from Jim in Hackensack New Jersey… or at least Jim handled it in the mail room and stuff and got it to me so… Alright, let’s figure out what this is now. In the shrink wrap. Oh, this is easy. This is a little car. But, actually, I’m going to say that is a truck because it’s a lot larger than a car. I feel like the tires on the bottom are much bigger. Look at how long it is. Yeah, I’m going to say I’m going to call that a truck. Final answer.
BEN: I’ll tell you it is a vehicle but it is not a truck.
TOMMY: It’s not a train. Look, there are windows on the side. Is it just a car? BEN: Yes, it’s a car.
TOMMY: Alright, so I have a question. Are these the doors here because they’re open?
BEN: No, those are windows. Those are rolled down windows.
TOMMY: Oh, they’re rolled down. Okay. BEN: It’s got a sun roof.
TOMMY: Does it have a sun roof? BEN: You could probably rent that for $24/day at Hertz. TOMMY: [laughs] Well, alright then. I’m in. [music plays] Ben, there appears to be some paper in here. I assume it’s got writing on it.
BEN: Hi Tommy. I really like your videos and you always make me laugh or smile. I’m sending you this thing here. I’m not going to give it away yet. I want you to guess what it is and I’ll tell you the rest of the note.
TOMMY: Okay… Right away, I feel like that would be a disc of some kind. Right, like a DVD or a compact disc. Or perhaps a BluRay. So I’m going to take the shrinkwrapping off and see if that will help. Alright… this is what they call those digi-packs. Yeah, so there’s a disc of some sort inside here. I’m going to say… compact disc. Final answer. BEN: That’s correct.
TOMMY: Hey! BEN: “I’m sending you a CD of a 70’s/80’s amazing band from Argentina, my country.
TOMMY: Wow! BEN: Let me know if you like it. Katherina. TOMMY: Katherina. Thank you so much. I will. I absolutely will. [music plays] Can you read what this note says please.
BEN: Dear, Tommy. Hello. My name is Jillian. I remember that you said in one of your videos that you don’t really understand how a three dimensional object can be drawn in two dimensions. So I made you four drawings with my 3D doodler, or my 3Doodler.
TOMMY: Holy cow. BEN: I hope they get to you intact because I’m sending them from New York City.” So, Tommy, what I’ve done is I’ve separated them so you can focus on one at a time and also we can follow with the camera. TOMMY: Okay. It’s very intricate. It’s super delicate. So I feel like there’s a shape inside here that matters, right. This sort of the empty space. But I can’t quite tell what that is. It comes to a corner here at the bottom. I don’t know what this could be.
BEN: I could give you a hint. TOMMY: Yes, please.
BEN: It’s a side view of something. TOMMY: A side view of something. It’s not a car. I’m completely lost… but I’m absolutely stumped. but I’m absolutely stumped.
BEN: That’s a profile of a woman. TOMMY: This is a profile of somebody’s face?
BEN: And what you have there is her hair is pulled back into a ponytail… to the top of the back of her head.
TOMMY: Sure… I get it now. The texture, sure. BEN: And the hair is hanging down. And then that’s the side. And that’s her chin down there and that’s her nose right there.
TOMMY: Wow. BEN: You see it now?
TOMMY: Sure, now it does. It makes sense. I still don’t quite understand it.
BEN: Well, it’s if somebody were to draw somebody’s face or a profile of somebody, that’s what it would look like. TOMMY: That’s what it would look like.
BEN: People tell you, “oh, get a 3D pen and do your drawing so you know what they look like. Well, there you go. Let’s pretend you drew that. But know you know what it actually looks like on paper. Does that make sense? TOMMY: Yeah, it really does.
BEN: Okay, here’s the next object Tommy.
TOMMY: Okay… It has a rounded bottom and all of this up here at the top… 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 pieces. [gasp] I know what that is. I know what this is. Is it a foot? Like the five toes or the five finger? A foot or a hand. I’m going to say hand because it opens more. BEN: That’s correct.
TOMMY: Hey! BEN: So if somebody were to draw their hand… actually, it’s like an outline if you were to lay your hand flat down on that piece of paper. Outline it with a marker. Took it away. That is what it would like. TOMMY: That’s what you — [gasp]. No foolin’ because I’ve done that a million times as a child. You know, just take a pencil and just go right around like this… So that’s what that would look like? That’s crazy. That’s very cool. BEN: I think these next two pieces were personally transported by United Airlines. So go ahead and tell us what it is. TOMMY: Okay, so this one… now I’m going to say that there’s an awful lot of texture on this. Alright, there are things that stick off of the bottom. Off the left and right off the bottom of it. Can I ask you question? So the first two were sort of human. Would this also be in the human category? BEN: No, but it would be living.
TOMMY: But it’s a living thing. Could it be… is it a flower of some sort? BEN: That’s correct.
TOMMY: It is! See, because I feel like these are sort of stems here on the bottom and then there’s so much stuff in here and then like a rose or something like that, you know, after it blooms and stuff it opens up nice and wide.
BEN: That’s exactly what it is. It’s a rose. TOMMY: Wow. That’s really neat. Alright, let me see if I can… this is very difficult. Uh huh…. Now, I feel like this is animal. I feel like it’s kind of a long animal, but see… well, I thought it was a bird. I thought these two were like wings and up here were sort of like bird face. But this part makes me think it’s a beak.
BEN: Well, I’ll say you are correct. It is an animal, but it’s not a bird. TOMMY: Like I want to say…
BEN: So if those aren’t wings, then what are those things.
TOMMY: If they’re not wings… could it be a fish?
BEN: That’s correct. TOMMY: I don’t know what kind of fish?
BEN: And what about the top? TOMMY: Yeah, I don’t know what that part is.
BEN: Well, what fish has a top… TOMMY: A shark?
BEN: That’s correct.
TOMMY: Is that the shark fin… so these are fins. So this is the part you see sticking out of the water and you freak out. Wow. And this is part that will rip you apart.
BEN: No, that’s the tail. TOMMY: Oh, I see. So I’m backwards. Holy mackerel. So it really doesn’t have much of face.
BEN: It’s got a little smile, a little face there, and an eye. They don’t have much. They’re, they’re fish. They’ve got an eye and a mouth. TOMMY: That’s incredible stuff. I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life, Jillian. Thank you so much.
[music plays] So if you want to send stuff in, I’d love to see it. I’d love to open it on camera. The address is right there in the description. So, please… anything you’d like… just send it on in and we’ll open more stuff soon. Listen, this channel, we’re doing our part to keep the mail business alive. [laughs
