Gone are the days of simply placing your business card into the plastic bowl aka a black hole.  No longer will you be wait anxiously to see if you are in fact the winner of that free sandwich or t-shirt.

Say hello to the Superbowl, the latest twist on the boring business card fish bowl. Put it out on your counter or at your tradeshow booth, and a simple LED matrix instantly tells you whether you have won. We even created a push-button admin interface to pre-determine the chances of winning. Check it out:

Here is how it works:

The Superbowl detects cards much in the same way that a laser trip wire works. On one side of the slot is a photoresistor that detects the light intensity and on the other is an ultra bright focused LED. When the photoresistor detects a noticeable decrease in light output, the Superbowl triggers the prize selection algorithm.

Pretty slick, we know.  Please note that there’s a 0% chance we’ll actually be able to call this thing the “Superbowl”.
