Stan got it! No fair using TinEye or other image search. The fun is in looking for clues in the pictures.

It looks like a steampunk thing but it is real. Someone post a new what is it.

From the file name I'm guessing it is HAL's camera eye.

I liked coffee during Science Class in the 60's.
That however is a different "spin" on things...

A spinthariscope is a device for observing individual nuclear disintegrations caused by the interaction of ionizing radiation with a phosphor.
When I was a kid someone showed me this device. When you look into it (after 15 minutes of darkness for your eyes to adjust) this is what you see...

I hope I don't grow a third eye from the radiation!... :o

never seen it before... so its hard to guess, when you are not aware of its existence. Its nice tho, now i know something more.
It sounds superscientific, but its just glowing phosphor, which i think everybody had some glowing thing made from it :)
