Poker Hole Card-Cam Inventor is Honored

{mosimage}So how does the inventor of the poker hole card-cam (which allows TV audiences to see the cards without letting other players see) ties into Transformers? When the inventor happens to be Henry Orenstein, a Polish Holocaust survivor, toymaker turned inventor, and also credited on convincing Hasbro to produce the Transformers toys we've come to love (and occasionally dislike) back in the 1980s. In addition, he holds the patent on the rub sign tech!
