We imagined a machine standing on a bar, with on the client side a camera pointing at you, a screen showing the camera output and few instructions. On the back side, a single button allowing the barman to launch the lottery for one ticket. What the machine do once you press the front big button (I really love these Adafruit massive buttons!), is taking a picture of you. And then there is two possibilities. If you loose, a souvenir receipt is printed with the picture of your face and a random funny quote. If you win, a winning receipt with the face of someone else is printed, and instructions telling you that if you find the random guy on the printed picture, you both won a free beer.

Massive Arcade Button with LED – 100mm Red: OMG WATCH OUT! This 100mm diameter arcade button with a 10mm deep plastic base is so massive and inviting it may collapse upon itself and form a black hole from which not even light can escape! Until it does, however, it ready for all sorts of pressing and pushing. Science has shown no one can resist pressing its shiny surface and saying “beep!”. We’ve seen these on some games of skill in arcades, they’re easy to mount on nearly any kind of enclosure. They’re not waterproof or weatherproof, so best used indoors. Read more.
