#658: Ungraving

Every pub quiz or office bowls competition these days has to have its prizes. Too often, these take the form of cups which are presented without any mention of the competition title or the recipient’s name. The cost of having such trophies professionally engraved is actually much higher than buying the metalware in the first place.

Today’s invention is a generic trophy made with a slot at the front to accommodate a small LCD display -just like the cheap ones fitted to everyday calculators and watches. This would have its keypad located on the base of the cup, allowing entry of the required details for display.

I’d also suggest having someone with a genuine aesthetic sense undertake the initial redesign: typical sports club cups are just uber-ghastly.
