The origin of modern radio frequency identification (RFID) technology can be traced back to 1973, when Mario Cardullo’s passive radio transponder with storage function began. The source of the application itself can be traced back to 1945, with the Soviet “Big Seal” (Big Seal) bug.
Nowadays, RFID tags are composed of radio transponders, receivers and transmitters, according to AnalyticsIndiaMag. Battery-powered active tags and radio wave-powered passive tags have a wide range of applications. RFID is used for data collection, identification tags (for human ID cards and animal protection), tracking, item tagging, and machine-readable documents (such as passports).
In an increasingly data-driven world, this relatively old technology is gaining popularity in a near-basic form. However, in some areas, RFID has undergone great adjustments and has become a part of innovative new products, which can in turn stimulate further creative applications of RFID technology.

Use RFID as part of the game
The main purpose of RFID technology is to track and store items or inventory of items. The simplicity of its design and use has kept it to this day. Because RFID is easy to track and identify, recognizing the reason why RFID is so popular, innovative game designers decided to try to use the technology to create physical games in the form of digital management.
This is the result achieved Norwegian Automation, It uses RFID technology to provide users with live casino games. Before the advent of live games, online casinos will offer table games in the form of video driven by RNG, such as roulette, blackjack and poker. By combining real-time streaming media with RFID tags, the platform creates a way for gamers to play at the table via an Internet connection.
In live table games, RFID is used in cards. Each deck has its own chip to be scanned to ensure that the new deck is rearranged and put into use. In addition, these cards have their own chips built in. These special cards are usually larger and are also suitable for users on the other side of the screen. Whenever the card is pulled out, it is pulled through the scanner, and then the scanner converts the ID of the card into a computer program.Resources: Pixabay
This information will automatically update the user’s screen and the program that runs the game, thus ensuring a seamless gaming experience from physical tables to live games can be streamed to portable computers and mobile devices. In addition to converting and relaying data, other technologies are needed. The application of RFID in casino games is very simple, but it allows players to enjoy a real hands-on experience.
The future of RFID technology
Online casino platforms will not be the last company seeking to take advantage of the ease of use of RFID technology. Following its more traditional uses, we are almost certain to see new RFID tags whose range will be greatly increased and resemble artificial intelligence built into chips. This may lead to more effective tracking and data collection methods, making them smart tags.
Following the development of blackjack and poker, more game environments are likely to emerge. Board games are expected to become the next frontier in the implementation of RFID tags.Soul Sports International, the details are as follows Engadget, He crafted a Scrabble game that can track the player’s movement and continue to keep track of how much each letter is left.
By modern standards, this is a fairly simple and outdated technology, but despite decades of history, RFID tags are still evolving and their uses are constantly expanding.
