Precision Dynamics Corp., a company that began making plastic hospital wristbands out of a Burbank garage more than 50 years ago, has become the nation’s top producer of a new microchip-enhanced wristband for amusement parks, concerts, resorts and gyms, reports The Los Angeles Times.
The wristbands use the same technology as electronic tollbooths, security key cards and the newest U.S. passports.
But at Precision Dynamics, this sophisticated electronic know-how has found its niche at theme parks, where the high-tech wristbands act as high-security admission passes, cashless debit cards, hotel room keys and a form of identification to reunite lost children with parents.
“All sorts of things can be done with this technology,” said Walter Mosher Jr., a founder of the privately held company.
