Ice cream shop uses RFID
Available flavours are shared immediately thanks to RFID
Isn't ice cream one of the great joys of summertime? Although there are a few global brands with chain stores selling ice cream, many ice cream shops are small businesses run by a person or a family.
One such shop in the United States is using RFID to inform its customers about which of its 100 handmade ice cream flavours are for sale at any given moment. Available flavours change across the day as tubs in the storefront empty out and are replaced by new ones from a stock in the back of the shop.
RFID makes it possible to keep track: All of the tubs of this shop's ice cream have an RFID chip on the underside. As people wait in line, an electronic display board behind the counter, which is connected to the RFID system, shows what flavours are currently available. The list is also posted to the shop's website in real-time, so people can check before they even leave home.
Thanks to RFID, this shop's ice cream lovers can always get the 'scoop' on their favourite flavours.
