I am thinking something similar to roulette or baccarat. It could show both dice, so people could see how many hardways were rolled.

I assume that the reason it hasn't gotten the number of installs it deserves is because, unlike Roulette with it's sensors, someone would need to enter the dice values. Too time consuming for a fast paced game like Craps.
It's something I'd like to see, but I don't expect to see much of it in the near future, and I'm OK with that.
Because of hardways and hop bets, the boxman (or whoever) would need to enter the exact roll. That would require either pushing two buttons, or pushing one button on a panel that had a button for each of the 21 unique combinations .Quote: thecesspit
Box man presses one of 11 buttons after each roll. How hard could it be if he had the buttons lined up in front of him?
The ShowBoat in A.C. had that for a while, for a long roll of the week contest. The problem was, the boxman often forgot to push the button, so he would occasionally push it several times, guessing at how many rolls he missed.Quote: fremont4ever
... the Fremont has a counter at their tables that keeps track of how many rolls the current shooter has had since the last 7-out. If they can do that, something like the electronic board as discussed here shouldn't be all that complicated.
I was keeping track. His accuracy could easily be described as crappy.
I hit the bonus again with my last $2 and "set" both die on Aces, I went on 22 rolls before "7ing" out. Turned $2 into $79. The slot machine keeps track of the last roll on the bonus feature; so when I walked away it showed that I had 22 total rolls. The tracking of rolls is a nice touch and I'd love to see a tracking measure like this at an actual Craps table.
2) It wouldn't be too hard or expensive to put a small video camera near the center of the table. Next the stick man would pull the dice without changing the way they rolled (which would be a bit difficult) to the camera before passing them back to the shooter. This can go on while bets are paid.
