According to National Sport Forum's "Selling It...", 6/1...
Minor League Baseball's, Jacksonville Suns, are now using "wristbands" which "store" a person's money, id, etc to facilitate faster times
through their concession stands. They will also be used to Check ID to ensure customer is of legal drinking age.
The Jacksonville Suns of Minor League Baseball have begun using electronic wristbands that enable fans to purchase concession items by a flick of the
wrist. Called Smart AgeBand Wristbands, the wristbands are dispensed from kiosks loaded with dollar amounts chosen by fans. And when a person visits a
concession stand, they simply wave the band in front of a digital reader to complete the purchase. Additionally, the "AgeBand utilizes special
software to verify the authenticity of state issued driver licenses or ID credentials. The system scans the magnetic stripe on the back of the
credential and applies the information to the Smart AgeBand Wristband, which will let the concessionaires know if the patron is above the drinking age
or not," states the source article. The wristbands were developed by Precision Dynamics Corporation. The wristbands are disposable; they are good for
up to 30 days from the time of purchase, but after that a fan would have to put money onto a new one. The Suns say the wristbands have helped to
reduce concession lines.

The only problem is they degrade after 30 days and have to be replaced. I bet if they were embedded in your right hand or forehead they would last
alot longer! ;-)
"He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead so that no one
could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let
him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man's number. His number is 666"
