The owner of Games By Email takes his job seriously. He does all the dice rolling, to keep things fair. That’s a lot of rolling. What to do?

His first effort was a Lego tower attached to a 286 with a camera and catcher. This contraption was able to roll up to 80,000 rolls per day. Unbelievable. Unfortunately, the Lego tower didn’t survive a move, and he wanted something more permanent, anyway. So he came up with a bigger, better one: the Dice-O-Matic.

The Dice-O-Matic is 7 feet tall made from aluminum and Plexiglas. Read all about it, but suffice to say it rolls over 1,300,000 rolls per day. Some might call this overkill, but we call it an elegant bit of hacking.
