RFID Sushi I'm busy catching up with all the blogs I've neglected reading over the week.

I came across a post about calculating your tab the RFID way. It turns out that the sushi / sashimi plates have the RFID tag attached so that the staff can just scan the stack of plates to tally up the total.

I think this is pretty cool. However, I think it would work better if the RFID tag was actually in the sushi itself. That way you just scan the person's stomach as they're leaving the store. This way you can prevent some dirty gaijin sitting next to you from slipping in plates into your stack.

Come to think of it, it's quite amazing that Japan has been able to live without this technology for so long. How did they ever do business back in the good, old bubble days?
