Ryder Cup 2006 – Cool Tech Sighting

The cool tech award for the Ryder cup 2006 has to be awarded to the event photography. The event photographers were mingling with the supporters in the Ryder cup bar in the tented village. Their process for taking and distributing photos was simple but elegant.
Before taking a photo of a group of people they would scan a card that had a barcode on it and give it to Joe Public. They would then take a photo of Joe Public, the image was transferred via wi-fi to a printing station in the tented village. All Joe Public had to do was present the card at the printing station and receive their free photo.

    Damm I missed that! With the camera ban it would have been very handy!
