An ice cream café in  St Paul, Minnesota, is now using Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) to update customers of all available flavors in real-time.

Izzy’s Ice Cream Café offers more than one hundred flavors, but serves only a maximum of 32 in its dipping cabinet at any given time. To help inform consumers faster, Izzy’s equipped the dipping cabinets with readers that capture each flavor’s corresponding labels embedded with an RFID tag at least 22 times per second.
