The Consultant

Rust examined the strange device hoping to find answers for the client who brought it to him. What did it do? Where did it come from? It unfastened with ease, had wires and gears, a switch and three buttons, yet no apparent power source or even a compartment to house a battery. He reassembled the egg-shaped device and on a hunch based on the materials it was made from, re-examined it from a new angle. He placed the mechanism in a small tub of water, lifted the flap revealing it’s toggles and flipped the switch: it vibrated with energy! He was delighted to answer at least one of his client’s questions, but expressed his disappoint that he couldn’t determine its purpose as he returned it back to the client.
