Pretty cool, think it is time for a dice roll upgrade devs.

While that is indeed a cool RNG ...

... I still prefer the sound of thousands of hamsters shaking little dice cups.

Edit: With the probable eventual release of that device in something the size of a USB stick (that's what I got from the article anyway), it's an extremely powerful idea to offload randomness to a device like that - per server or across the whole farm. Sweet tech! :)

I still prefer the unbroken string of 1s or 20s myself, lol.
