ok, so what am I holding here?

I've got it! The camera!
Or do you mean in your left hand?

My first answer is the camera, my second one is a pack of cigs with the label whited out.

Looks like a brushed aluminum casing. Is it a cigarette case?

A pill box?

Probably electronic…..a Life Alert device. Help, I’ve seen it and I can’t get it right.

GPS tracking device?

Low Jack tracker?

I think I have been staring at it too long--it is starting to look like it is slightly translucent. Probably just an optical illusion, or hunger, but it looks a little different to me now. Still no clue what it is (all of your guesses sound good to me!).

it`s non of those :)

Barbara, keep looking!

edited to add: this is Nothing Mysterious or complicated, I`m sure most Everyone has seen or heard of these, some may have even Used them.
and although you are Likely to find them in some Labs, they`re Not exclusive to a Lab.

It looks like a Frigidaire that cheap Ken gave to Barbie before he moved out. She wanted a defrostless model with an icemaker and the relationship chilled after that. Barbie is now on hormone replacement therapy and doing much better.

In other words dont' have a clue yet.................

It reminds me a little of those trays they use to count out pills at the pharmacy. It is too small to be that, but that's all that comes to mind at the moment!

You said it was used in a lab but not unique to a lab... A medical lab? A science class lab? A mad scientist lab?

Does it hold a speciman? Is it a type of slide? Does it have to do with DNA?

This is frustrating because I've worked in a lab
