We all knew it was coming...
I know the first thing you will do when you get home with it is take it apart to see how it ticks. What I'm wondering is whether you'll be able to wait until you get home.

I don't have to. I have an RFID prototyping kit on my desk at the office.
It appears to have HF and UHF RFID Chips along with a Zigbee Near Field Radio operating on 2.4ghz.
Somehow, I just knew you would say this.
I'm still trying to figure out bar codes.
Morse code, you know, binary! 01 011 01 001 0001 1100
FWIW, My DW had my wedding band made so that the outside has our anniversary date in binary.
01010011 01101000 01100101 00100111 01110011 00100000 01100100 01100101 01100110 01101001 01101110 01101001 01110100 01100101 01101100 01111001 00100000 01100001 00100000 01101011 01100101 01100101 01110000 01100101 01110010 00101110
That's one way to make sure you don't forget the date
Sadly, when it comes to binary, I still have to cheat:
Jack, is that your binary clock?
So I am given to understand.
I'm going to think up a great comment for this thread as soon as I finish enjoying Food & Wine.
I wonder if they will have an option for someone if they don't want a wristband? Like if they have a sensitivity issue to wearing something like that or they would just rather carry a card isted?
I wouldn't get too hung up ion the wrist band thing. They will work just as well on a belt loop or camera strap. It's not like they need to feel a pulse to work.
At least not yet....

I honestly can't wrap my head around this. Why would they go through this expense on something that'd be disposable?
I wasn't thinking of it needing a pulse . More of say an autistic kid who won't wear something like that. I', not autistic but when I used to go to a local amusement park they had a play all day pass that was a bracelet that you wore, by the end of the day I wanted it off.
Current media is disposable.
They can put RFID readers everywhere and figure out rather accurately traffic patterns and habits.
That data is worth more than the minimal cost once R+D is completed.
Guess this puts and end to sending one person to pick up fastpasses for the group now? If the wristband replaces the cards, you can't just hand them off anymore.
Just because its a "wristband" doesn't mean you can't take it off.
Oh no they will just be standing in the line with all the bracelets on one arm like it's the 80's all over again.
I'm looking forward to watching the tourists who don't understand how this works and keeps hitting it on the post and screaming about it not working properly.
