well, to be honest i was pretty stumped,  had a bit of luck with google image searches with an exact search term "pocket signal converter serial port"  first result looked quite similar

Galen brought it home though, well done

Curious about the volume slider thing on it though?

I was expecting a "Pocket dial up modem" but I guess signal converter will do as well.
The slider is used to tighten/loosen the screws..

Looks like something related to a rotary engine?

The camshaft rotor(?) from a wankle engine, right? That rounded triangular shape (a reuleaux triangle)  rotates around in a square-shaped motion.

Correct. Very lively little motor. Timed explosions on both ends send it around that cylinder in an eccentric fashion, eliminating a lot of parts and kinetic loss compared to a reciprocating engine. Only problem still is the seals on the corners wearing out faster than a normal engine.

dayowlron and Galen could have a race to see who's next.

looks like a 3D render of some weird wheelbarrow, a wheelbarrow that transports corn and flour comes out at the end or so :)

A "seeder"? One to spread seeds over a field?
