Hawaii hotels use washable RF chip to track stolen towels, saves $16k/mo. No kidding.

Hawaii's Civil Beat news site reports that one Honolulu hotel is one of the first in the country to use washable radio frequency tracking chips to track linens. Stolen pool towels have dropped from an average 4,000 per month to 750, the RF manufacturer says, saving the hotel $16,000 a month.

(Disclosure: I did some work with the folks at Civil Beat. And I like them.)
