Cool RFID tag application - runners attach it to their shoes and they're automatically timed at several points along a race. Used in the Chicago marathon where 40,000 runners compete. "The ChampionChip is a high-tech, easy to use timing device. It can provide accurate net and split times for every individual athlete. Once you buy your own yellow chip, you can use it all over the world in almost any event we time." 9:04:36 AM
