Remember BuckyBalls? You know, those amazing tiny little rare earth magnets that you can sculpt into all sorts of artistic (and not so artistic) creations? How’d you like a chance to win some of these cool metallic playthings for yourself?


Thanks to the guys over at BuckyBalls, Technabob readers can win these just by guessing how many balls are in the photo below. All you’ve got to do is post a comment below, along with your guess as of the exact number of BuckyBalls in the image below, and you’ll be entered to win.


If you get it right, you’ll win a bunch of BuckyBalls magnets!

  • 1st place (closest to exact number) wins 3 sets (value $75 USD)
  • 2nd place wins 2 sets (value $50 USD)
  • 3rd through 5th places win 1 set each (value $25 USD)

Can’t wait to play with these things? Then head on over to GetBuckyBalls and order a few sets right now. The first 30 readers to buy a set will save $2.50 by entering the promo code “technabob” at checkout.

CONTEST RULES: You must have U.S. shipping address to participate, and only one entry per IP address will be allowed (so don’t go tinkering around with 10 different e-mail addresses!) Be sure to post a valid e-mail address, as it’s the only way I can contact you to let you know you’ve won. The contest ends on 7/31/2009 and any ties will be subject to a random drawing from the pool of winning entries.
