"Well actually nothing," admits a security manufacturer who is giving away 3000 rubber ducks at ASIS 2012. Indeed, there are 25 sets for you to pick from, including:
- Viking rubber ducks for Axis employees
- Super villian rubber ducks for OV employees
- Zombie rubber ducks for analog dealers
Now, you may be saying, "Why is this company giving away rubber ducks?" This manufacturer's answer is that "kids love parents and grandparents to bring back cool stuff." All ASIS attendees need to do is pre-order and pick them up at the manufacturer's booth.
