New BluffCam App Offers Poker Players An Edge

When it comes to playing poker, bluffing is one of the most intricate features of gameplay. However, many players cannot be objective when it comes to gauging how stern their poker face actually is – and you can’t really trust your opponents to give you honest insight on what your tells really are. That’s why WowWee has created BluffCam, a smartphone application that helps you form the perfect poker face.

BluffCam is a first-of-its-kind application that gives players unique insight into their own behaviour at the poker table. It not only measures their heart rate but tracks the tone of their skin to determine how players actually react during certain hands. Players can track their progress on a handy notepad that is included in the application.

Soon, WowWee will release BluffCam – Table Edition, which allows players to investigate the poker faces of their opponents. If the application is a success, it is likely that mobile phones will be banned from poker tables. In most card rooms, they can be used so long as the player is not involved in a hand; however, the introduction of poker strategy related apps may see their use banned completely.
