I saw that a few months back and just thought it was so neat and inventive. This one looks similar but has a totally different use.

um, looks like a serial port on the top there,  i see a volume slider, and 3 small holes on the device itself, perhaps this is an old audio sampler for computers that can also record voices?

is the device related to some sort of voice activation function, such as security?

The three dots at the top look like they could be a microphone. It resembles some kind of pedal. But the knob looks more like some kind of gain rather than volume given the symbols. It also looks like it maybe has a VGA port.

So some kind of handheld magnifier or scanner?

So it is some kind of signal converter.
Audio to bits+bytes?
a pocket transformer?
DC to AC? (to CD?)

why do you censor so much, I post a black image next and you have to guess what it could be :P

Looks vaguely like a composite/s-video/rca to vga convertor https://rukminim1.flixcart.com/image/832/832/jj0bbm80/selector-box/e/6/z/smacc-av-to-vga-composite-video-tv-vga-s-video-composite-rca-av-original-imaf6ghhhutcm3et.jpeg?q=70 but definitely only vaguely.

So... 'CD', and two ports that look like they could be 3.5mm. So possibly some kind of audio convertor with a strange output. Not any kind of phono amp. Still think that looks like a vga.

Maybe... audio to video (i.e. spectograph/waveform?)? Something for splitting a combined video/audio input into VGA and 3.5mm?
