tetonic analyzer---tells when an earthquake is going to erupt like when someone gets an answer correctly here--the liquid inside agitates and moves back and forth like a tsunami??????? Oooooooh, maybe too many antibiotics---I'm feeling muuuuuuuuuch better today. :)

several ideas come to mind: tester for electrical voltage or wattage, whatever, or a temperature probe, or a fancy gauge for tire pressure? Not 20 questions--but 3 questions if that's alright. :)

It canít be a voltage or power (wattage) tester since there are not two probes. To test voltage, current, or power, you need two probes (positive and negative for flow). This thing seems to have a single input. A liquid tester such as breathalyzer, air pressure, fiber optics (single line for laser light)? This is interesting.

I could be a signal tester for a coax type cable if the center conductor was shielded from the grounding shield thus developing the two polarities in one single enclosure (case versus core).

Keltin,

I was sorta following you in your first paragraph because my DH does have an old voltage/current tester and I do recall that it had 2 wires coming off of it but your second paragraph totally lost me. I hope that you're right---it sounded so good!

speaking of laser lights is this one of those devices that real estate agents use to measure the square footage of rooms, etc.?
