UK gamblers looking to get their teeth knocked out will be happy to hear the news that a company has developed a device that makes cheating at the roulette tables much easier. Costing around $1,900, the device employs a time recorder, a computer and an earpiece. When put in the hands of someone who actually knows how to gamble properly (not a newbie, in other words), the odds of winning can be greatly stacked in their favor. One estimate showed a 100 percent increase in the likelihood of winning.

The device measures the acceleration speed of the wheel and sends the info to the on-board computer. The computer then calculates where the ball will send based on the acceleration data and sends the result to an earpiece inside the user's ear canal. All very tricky, all very likely to get you thrown out—if not worse—from your local house of gambling.
