A device to predict where the roulette ball will land, increasing the bettor's odds. Augments the predictive powers of the bettor.

The system was a cigarette-pack sized analog computer with 4 push buttons. A data-taker would use the buttons to indicate the speed of the roulette wheel, and the computer would then send tones via radio to a bettor's hearing aid. The system was invented in 1961. It and its successors were the first to produce better than even odds on a gambling game.
