Has anyone of you fellows got this?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I don't, but I wonder about the utility of scanner systems. I don't think I've ever sat at a table where the stakes were high enough to warrant this kind of device where cell phones were allowed on the table.

I haven't got this one but in case it works the same way than the other ones a quick inspection of the sides of the decks reveals everything. Besides, you need to put the camera on the table at a certain angle (even if a good range is allowed). Lastly, not many games allows you to leave your cell phone, lighter, etc. on the table. And what about the micro ear stuff...

The idea is clever though and with some improvements it may be very hard to detect. I'm gonna work on something like that in a close future.

There was an incredible scam about a year ago on full baccarat with a similar idea. The large denomination chips in some casinos are called plaques and are large square plastic looking things. The dealer would offer the cut for an eight deck shoe and "for luck" a player would put one of these "plaques" on the side of the deck and give it a little whack with his fist. Incredibly, in that moment, the plaque (which was filled with electronics) recorded all the cards in approximately a two deck slug just by touching the edges of a squared up shoe.

I am laughing my ass off at the different systems for omaha and hold'em. Hysterical.

They have "remote dice" as well.

"Do you know you can use remote control to control the dices?

It is a simple thing, you just need a set of remote controlling device, then you can control the dices. Of course the dices should be processed."

@splice,

Prices? I can't see where the prices are there.

I'm sure if I could see or find the prices I'd be laughing too.

I'm not sure it's fair to tell you prices if you can't find them by yourself but let's do it another way.

There are similar products, sold elsewhere, for... hold your breath: $17K. Yes, you read me well, 17 grand.

You're not sure that it's fair? Wow. You're just too much.

Let me be super-unfair and reveal some super-secret prices which you don't dare show:

Not everything's there, but I guess I'm just not l33t enough.

It's not that I don't dare. I've never written they were secret prices. Some sellers want you to email them in order to know the prices. I call that respecting them. If they don't want to make them public, what should I?

About the price I gave, it's different, it's public, just find where it is Smile.

Note that many sellers are just the same one, using different websites. I wouldn't send my money without scratching my head...

PS: Nah, you're not l33t. Far from it.

I used to work retail in a record store that had huge inventory. Every year we'd have to inventory the whole store with bar code guns that were not cheap and it was a pain in the ass to get the *** guns to read the bar codes. Last time I was home, around december last year, I stopped in and found out that they'd switched over to a palm computer upc reader app because supposedly the cataloging was going to be much easier. But they were still using the old fritzy guns because they couldn't get the specially made, expensive scanner peripheral to read the barcodes without a lot of jiggery pokery to get the angle right. as lame as the guns were, the palmtop thing was just too sensitive to go fast enough for them. they were using them for recording merchandise deliveries, because that wasn't as labor intensive, but for the storewide annual inventory it was as tedious as it ever was.

I really really doubt that some modification to a nokia handset's built in camera is going to be that much better, and particularly since from the illustration it's reading length and position rather than just bar width which is what traditional UPC codes use.

Simply because you made a reference to finding the prices, not inquiring about them. That would presume you found the prices, so they are public, so there is no respect issue. But w/e.

Ah, Arnold, always willing to judge people even if you have no clue who they are or what they know. Good on you, don't let your complete lack of knowledge of any relevant facts hold you back.

Those pictures they display as if they were taken from the cell phone sure look good. There's barely any of the noise that's omnipresent in low light conditions. However, since the data is being sent to a laptop anyway, there could be a lot of post-processing done in order to get better data from the picture. So it's probably theoretically possible, but I imagine it requires a good number of preconditions before you can get good performance out of it.

Hm, maybe. still, that's some pretty sophisticated DSP and what happens when the dealer just finished eating chicken wings right before he shuffled so the edges are all dark and greasy all of a sudden? that's an awful lot of chaos to have to sort through. I personally have never been so great at reading edge work myself, so maybe I'm overly skeptical of it as a rule, but it still strikes me that if you're going to mark a card, the place to do it is not the place that's gonna be touched forcefully by somebody's oily thumbs a couple hundred times a game.

Although, now that I think about it, the fact that it feeds the hands to you directly without an accomplice is interesting. I wonder how you tell it how many hands are in the game?

Still weighting every word I write, still forgetting English is not my language, still no sense of humor, etc. I don't judge you! Writing that you're not a l33t was a pun, a joke. Such words are used when you are 15 years old, you are not 15 years old any more. Stop looking for the tiniest bad meaning possible under every letter I write, it's getting ridiculous.
