    What's this?!

    Spent the day at a GMB union meeting in the very beautiful Brum Council House. Being a gadget geek i was immediately drawn to the box with lights and slots built into the tables of the cabinet room. I'm sure its got a proper name but the room was a cross between a lecture theater and an ampitheater (lol!) but with mics attached to the desks.

    Now its got something to do with the mics im guessing....but what's the slot for?

    What's this?!-photo.jpg

    Apologise for quality, i was trying to take the photo on the quiet without looking like a complete wierdo!!

    I was about to suggest it's a control device to send 1000 volts through the chair of the person you select via it's buttons
