RFID tags look like the most promising at this stage. Although one does need to be careful about reader distance so that tags aren’t read prematurely.

I’m kinda curious - how would you use a bhangmeter for HCI? I expect you weren’t thinking of blowing up nukes in morsecode…
Is ‘bhangmeter’ just a generic term for the kind of sensor capable of detecting the nuclear detonation flashes? I always assumed the sensor itself wasn’t really special, but it was set up to react only to the very specific readings made from nuclear blasts.
Anyway, cool thread smile Lots of interesting possibilities here.
