This is an incredible 11,000-word (read: not short!) history of the “electronic puck” and glowing pucks on television, complete with retro advertisements.
We learned something astonishing at one of the very first tests where we had put some LEDs in a puck. We had drilled some holes in a puck, and installed LEDs. If I recall correctly, I don’t think we even installed batteries. This was a survivability test. We wanted to know if we could get LEDs in a puck and have them last for several minutes with these guys slapping them around.
