Thanks Boondawg. This is mass transit revenue management and rider admission technology that rocks!

Big Q is what app(s) needed?
Then what permissions requires to run them?

These "neat tricks" often cost you and your privacy one way or the other plus often runs in background eating battery time too.

A more complete explanation. Same 9-second video clip.

I guess it's not something that the Washington DC Metro authority had anything to do with. Just an app that a free-lancing "dude" created, using his own Metro card.

There may be less here than "meets the eye."

But it looks "cool."
