Dean West clue

Our next device has gotten question marks written all over it.

Submitted by Dean West of Mapleton, Kansas, this device appears to have an eagle on the globe but aside from that, nothing else is known.

The hawk eyes that read the Messenger surely have a clue to help 83-year-old West out, right?

Readers, “What’s This?” and why does it work the way it does?
