  1. Jesse Says:

    By far the easiest contest yet.

  2. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hey Jesse,

    I thought I would do one that was a bit easier since the last few were kinda hard. 🙂

  3. Mike Says:

    I agree; this one is quite easy. I guess it makes up for the time spent searching for last
    weeks picture, and the toroidal chessboard…

  4. Jesse Says:

    I’m glad, it’s been awhile since I’ve even so much as guessed 😛

  5. Almost_There Says:

    Dang! I came across one of these recently someplace on the Web; now if I could just remember exactly where it was…

  6. London Says:

    uh… yeah… easy as pie

    *dang it what is that thing?!?*

  7. Simon Says:

    It’s a knife!

  8. bob Says:

    Simon: sorry to get your hopes up, but the first image is the “thing”, not the prize. I know, I’m disappointed too.

  9. Jensen (not my name) Says:

    Huh…glad it’s familiar…

  10. melka Says:

    We all think this is too easy… I guess my mother would have answered like Simon. Sometimes I think we really live on another world with our little gadgets ^^

  11. Fran Says:

    It’s not easy for me. I have no idea other than it’s some kind of
    A to D for audio or motor control. I’m curious though. If the chip
    numbers weren’t obscured I could probably tell you.
