    It is a moterized verison of the prize!
    (OR a novelty oversized pinball bump!)
    Seriously, I have NO idea…

  2. Alan Parekh Says:

    Never saw the resemblance but you are right, it does look like you could mount camera on the top. 🙂

    hehe, just bought the prize for 1$, ps> the legs are extendable and it can hold even slr 🙂

  4. Almost_There Says:

    I think I know what it is, and what it could be used for (just an educated guess), but I have no idea how to find the manufacturer or model number.

  5. Alan Parekh Says:

    Based on the number of entries this has got to be one of the hardest contests yet!!!

  6. Vintagepc Says:

    Let me guess: No entries? 🙂

  7. Rich Says:

    That is definately not a 1/4 – 20 thread for a camera….

    I am absolutely sure I know what it is. 😉

    I have never seen this specific item before.

    I have seen some people using a similar item as a cigarette holder!

    This will hold four.

  8. Alan Parekh Says:

    Hi VintagePC,

    There are some but not as many as any of the recent ones.

  9. Steve Prior Says:

    Since the contest is over please let us know what it was – I’m still stumped…

  10. Almost_There Says:

    I was going to guess that it was a Turbo Prop Balancer for model RC airplanes; we’ll see if I was correct after the answer is posted.

  11. Alan Parekh Says:

    Winner announced. Check out the number of entries! This one has been the hardest one by far. 🙂

  12. Almost_There Says:

    Oops, I guess I was wrong (again).
