Ocean City, New Jersey, a gorgeous East Coast beach community flush against the shoreline, is getting wireless. Real wireless.
According to RFID Journal, the city is hoping RFID will help make a trip to the beach more pleasant and convenient for the many vacationers who spend much of their summer there.
By summer 2009, the city plans to replace normal payment cards with waterproof, plastic wristbands containing passive RFID inlays, the Journal reports. These will serve as proof of payment while also providing a means of payment for food and parking.
