Ocean City New Jersey beach meets high tech by replacing the plastic beach badges with high tech RF ID wristbands that visitors will wear while visiting the New Jersey beach shores.

The devices, will automatically debit the visitor's bank accounts or credit cards to pay for beach access, food and parking. Even the garbage cans have gone high-tech by e-mailing the cleanup crews when they need to be empty.
" this is the future, said summer resident Karen Kinloch, "is for at right now. It's probably overdue. It's kind of antiquated to take a piece of plastic and pin it to your swimsuit. "

The new system, which uses WiFi wireless technology, will cost about $3 million and is expected to be finished in next summer.
" It will take the hassle out of going up to people and asking to see their badges,'' Will McKinley, a badge checker said. ''They're more OK with it up here. On the beach, they don't like to be hassled.'' "

Ocean City spins more than $282,000 a year to pay for 170 badge checkers like McKinley whose job is likely to be eliminated by the new system.
welcome to the 21st-century folks

It's sad that you have to pay to visit your own beach.
RFID is a real touchy subject with me but it's not so bad if you can wear it at will, however I would assume that the badge checkers that they will replace would also help you if a situation arose. Try waving that stupid bracelet for help.

People in government can't understand how we, in the private sector, make it in the face of changes in customer demand, tastes, fashion, etc.

Any employee of mine who proposed to replace a labor system that costs $282-thousand a year with a capital system that costs $3-million would be gone within the day.
