I found this weird device under my bed.... what is it?

Anonymous (not verified)

Hi everyone - I'm new here. I am posting in hopes that someone might know what this device is (see pics). Before I stumbled onto this site, I tried looking all over the internet to figure the answer my question, but alas - I've yet to find it! So I am hoping that some of you experts might be able to help me.

I found this device underneath by bed (I moved today...) I'm more 101% sure this was NOT there before, not when I moved in, not when even a month ago! (I'm a neat freak, I clean under my bed lol).

Anyway - can anyone IDENTIDY what this is?? From what I can tell, it is a short-range audio listening device - it even had a transmitter attached, and 3 small batteries......

Here are the pics. (Gosh, I hope someone can ID this thing and tell me for sure what it is.... I am completely certain I've never seen it or used anything in conunction with it in in life!!! - ps. sorry 3rd pic is blurry... hope it still helps though.)

It's a bug.

Your spouses lover planted under your bed to find out if she's cheating on him with you.

seriously, that looks like a peizoelectric speaker.

a small voice/soundbox from a toy. (electronic woopi-cusion, laughing santa clause, beat-Elmo-with-a-stick-and-see-who's-laughing-now doll etc.).

you're right it's not a peizoelectric speaker, but I do think it is a speaker none the less.

the absense of a larger transister and an antanae says voicebox.

three batteries says 4.5 volts, most transisters run off 9 volts, so there'd have to be a couple diodes and a capacitor or two as well as the transister to up the power and transmit anything.

Any electronic gurus out there? maybe somebody who knows more than me will chime in...
