Sunday @Team_Laser installed the first RFID login on Blitzen, the laser nearest the back door. The RFID login is currently very simple: Scan your RFID token or card and the laser will log you in and start the three hour wall timer. Simply press logout on the touch screen to finish your session.
The screen displays your name and phone number that you registered with DMS while you are logged in. This serves several purposes:
If you walk away for a moment (with the machine properly paused ), people will know the laser is still in use and not to take it.
If you walk away without pausing your job properly, anyone nearby knows who they need to find and how to get a hold of you.
It is the beginning of an electronic queue system we hope to add over time.
We hope the new system will, over time, make laser a better experience. We hope to continue to add features to the login screens, such as automatic cut-time counting so you know how much to pay for your laser session. Please let Team Laser know any feedback you have about the login screens. You will need to have taken the proper laser classes for each machine. If you’ve taken the class and you can’t login, let us know.
