I came to this article via another article that someone posted on twitter today. It's very long, but a fascinating read about a guy and his family that built small Blackjack counting computers and wore them into casinos in the 70's and 80's. As a builder of custom electronics by trade, It is truly amazing what they were doing with the technology they had available to them. They were very far ahead of their time. Infrared communication between two shoes with battery packs and computers in the soles...cameras built into belts, etc. Highly recommend taking an hour to read this if you enjoy Blackjack.
