How UpTrade To The VAIO Duo 11 From Sony
Step 1: Gather any pieces of old technology that you’ve got at your place. It can be anything you want: camera, phone, console, TV, tamagochi, blender, video games, walkman... The only trick is that it needs to date back before year 2000 - so don’t take the latest computer that you got for Christmas!
Step 2: Write the following message on the item:
"I want to UpTrade this / these for the #VAIODuo11 from Sony"
It can be however you want: On a post-it note sticked to your device(s), handwritten with dust, as a text message on your mobile phone… be creative! This time we are not going to judge your entries on your photographic skills but rather on your ingenuity and creativity.
Step 3: Take a photo of it all; your old piece of technology with the message written and send it to us via the entry form at Gizmodo. We want to be amazed by what you are ready to trade to get your hands on the new VAIO Duo 11.
