In an operation straight out of a James Bond movie, a trio of gamblers used a laser range-finder hidden in a mobile phone to predict the likeliest landing spot of a roulette ball, reducing the odds from 37-1 to 6-1.

Scotland Yard concluded that they did nothing illegal and were allowed to keep their winnings.

I wonder how long it'll be before this device shows up on Engadget.

(Once I discovered that I was scooped by Slashdot, I figured there was no hurry and held the story for a quiet day.)
