What Is It? game 254

Once again, it's time for our collaboration with the always amusing What Is It? Blog! Do you know what the object in this picture is? You can win even if you don't know!

Place your guess in the comment section below. One guess per comment, please, though you can enter as many as you'd like. Post no URLs or weblinks, as doing so will forfeit your entry. Two winners: the first correct guess and the funniest (albeit ultimately wrong) guess will each win a T-shirt from the NeatoShop.

Please write your T-shirt selection alongside your guess. If you don't include a selection, you forfeit the prize, okay? May we suggest the Science T-Shirt, Funny T-Shirt and Artist-Designed T-Shirts?

Check out the What Is It? Blog for more pictures of this item. Good luck!

Update: the unknown item turned out to be the housing for a four-face Verdin street clock. Anker was the first with the correct answer, which is good for a T-shirt from the NeatoShop! We also have a t-shirt for amanderpanderer, who said, "It is a connecting piece from the construction of Hamtopia, the pleasure palace for our Hamster overlords who will be arriving on December 21st. All Hail Squeeky, Lord of all Hamsters." That wins the award for the funniest answer of the week! You'll find the answers to all this week's mystery items at the What Is It? blog.


I could be wrong, but I am fairly certain that is the remains of the original housing for the doomed monkeys and dogs that were being shot into space during the early days of the Russian space program.

It's the center of an old piece of playground equipment, kind of like a teeter-totter, but not. When it was in use there would have been two poles connected at right angles and extending through the centers of the holes in the shown artifact. The poles, at their connection point, would have also been connected to the heavy springs visible at the bottom of the artifact. At the end of each pole would have been a seat for a child. The children would use this piece of playground equipment for bouncing, kind of like a teeter-totter, but with the added effect of being knocked sideways by their peers bouncing on the other pole.

I think that is something that it has some relation with water pressure, may be a type of pipe conector.

It is a space helmet for the little girl from "The Exorcist". 360 degree viewing perfect for when she spun her head. Sadly the design was scuttled because they couldn't find a way to empty the sphere of violent vomiting puke in outer space.

I think it is a piece of playground equipment too - but the connector piece between tubes kids crawl through - two of the circles would be connected to tubes, and two would have bubble plastic windows to look through.

Though it looks like a center piece to a piece of playground equipment it is actually a Kracken holding bay from Davy Jones locker. The lock mechanism can be seen on the bottom. Release the Kracken!

It's the centre hub of a wind turbine propeller.

The three large openings are where the propeller blades are attached, the smaller opening that is at the bottom in the photo is where the propeller is attached to the generator unit on top of the mast.

No t-shirt please.

The missing piece from the Large Hadron Collider. Oh you didn't know about it? It's why there's going to be a black hole created where earth and our solar system get sucked into it like a stellar toilet flush on Dec. 21st.

the recovered escape pod that the droids crashed landed on Tatooine. It was part of the deal with Lucas and Disney... he had to hand it over. Disney is in the process of restoring it as the centre piece for their next after-school special.

This is the platform for artificial coral reefs that serve as a habitat for live coral. perhaps incorporating human remains (ashes).

After the Millennium Falcon was decommissioned, Princess Leia had the gun turret from Lukes first space battle saved from the scrap heap. It is now in the Rebel Museum located on New Alderon. Visiting hours vary.
