Hey, this is neat. I have a PPC app for tuning the guitar but this is even better…
I swear, my Journey cover band was having a hell of a time trying to get started and I finally found out why. I could never get my guitar tuned right to handle those sick Journey riffs, so it would end up being way off or we would spend our entire jam session trying to tune the guitars correctly. Much to my delight String Master has released their Robotic Guitar Tuner. Yeah, these things have been around for a while, but this one is special, mostly special by being cheap, $50 cheap. Attach the robot to a peg, give the string a pluck and in no time you will be getting boo'd out of bars nationwide.

Sounds kind of interesting… I wonder if they could put the persons name on the RFID with a display somewhere that shows what each person had. On the fly updates during the game would be a hurdle, but it would still be kind of neat. Would definitely help for when you’re about to go All-IN!
< ![if !vml]>< ![endif]>If you think you can outsmart a casino, don’t bet on it. An agreement has been struck between Gaming Partners International Corp. and Galaxy Resorts to supply over 600,000 RFID gaming chips to casinos that will be opening in Macau, China next year. (Didn’t know they allowed gambling in China!) This is an example of an emerging trend whereby casinos are using RFID to stop gamblers from cashing in counterfeit gaming chips and to stop cheaters at various table games.
