Recently, Cammegh has introduced a wheel that subtly changes speed during the spin. The idea is that it’s supposed to thwart prediction by vb/rc players.
However, the nature of the design introduces a potential flaw that should be investigated. If a wheel speeds up and slows down, then there may be a subtle pattern to the rotation that can be recognized by observing some high quality video of the wheel in action. The trouble is finding a live online video feed that’s good enough. Another method would be examining long streams of data from the live wheel. This is where the bot guys could be of some use.
Here are some ways that you could possibly attack such a wheel. It does not directly involve VB or the use of an RC.
By viewing the video feed, you could, if the video is good enough, examine it frame by frame using Avidemux software. There’s a buit in clock (counter) in the software, that would enable you to determine how long it takes part of the wheel to rotate, while watching it in slow motion. The idea is to map the rotation of the rotor segments in order to try and find potential ‘slow spots’ that may exist below any dominant drop points on the wheel. Even if there is servo that is run by an rng, there may by a rhythm to the speeding up and slowing down (interval), despite the wheel speed itself being random. I doubt that such a high quality feed exists. However we could possibly send someone to collect some intel from certain locations or use a different and more time consuming approach.
Each time the dealer shoves the rotor to speed it up, it’s possible that the action of pushing on the wheel could introduce a speed up and slow down kind of ‘wave like function’ that could be observed and or measured by various means. (Remember, this type of wheel is designed to speed up and slow down.)
This is NOT some kind of VB. It’s more of a bias approach. It’s a potential way by which you could determine which section of the rotor (wheel head) is most likely to be below any dominant deflector. Theoretically it may be possible to predict where this section is before the ball is ever spun. In short, you would be attempting to predict which portion of the rotor will be traveling the slowest at the end of the spin in relation to a dominant drop area.
