Olympic stones seem to have 2 green lights on it, and it would be weird to have 2 dels light up if there are nothing else electronically speaking in the stone.

So what are the electronics in the stone, and what do they serve?

This is the "Eye on the Hog". It enforces the requirement that the stone must be released before the hog line to be valid.

  • And as an aside, the electronics are solely in the handle, not in the stone.
