I said yesterday I'd put some pictures of the travel bug up so here they are. The plan is to drop this in a cache tomorrow in the park behind CMU so I figured I'd better take the pictures whilst I still had the bug.
This bug is a mystery piece of equipment rescued from Area 51. Each finder takes a look at the item and attempts to identify it before moving it to a new location for another cacher to take a shot. So... any ideas? Tech-y people to the rescue?
I think whatever it is it should play music - those tooth comby bits have a couple of wires/strings running along them and the combs themselves are nice and flexible giving me a plinky-plink kind of feel. Each of the combs is actually half of a pair with some sort of connective material (or at least I assume it's connective) between them. Not sure about the purpose of that wire coil though - it does join up to the circuit board as well.
Still, if it doesn't play music then I shall suggest that or it must be a typewriter for midgets who need shelter from the rain :o) All those solder points look like tiny little keys/hammers.
Look at all that wonderful comment space ready for your suggestion... And to encourage you some more, I'll even post a picture of the electronicsy bit (that's the bit under the rain shelter). It's not a great picture though.
