Mystery #11


Do you know what this is? Post guesses in the comments. This should be easy for some people. Not necessarily the balletomanes.

Looks like a polygraph machine or the machine they use to mesure earth tremors (can't remember the name of it)

Looks familiar, but I can't place it...

A Key Making / Engraving machine?

How about the drum from an EEG machine?

Rick Lee said...

So far, nobody is correct.

Here's a clue. I'm fairly confident that you all own at least one of these.

Something in a watch? I was going to take one apart, I think I remember something like that in some kind of a clock.

What lens are you shooting these with?

Looks like the inside of a hard drive, but without platters for some reason.

A pocketknife?

Rick Lee said...

Yes, Greg... it DOES look like the inside of a hard drive... because that's what it is. The platter is there, you just can't recognize it because you can't see the edge. The platter is a perfect front-surface mirror so you are seeing the flywheel and read/write head reflected. Look here to see it better.

Dang,

Should have gotten that myself.
