First to Andy's question: No

I found this item on the internet, so I'll let you know what I know.

Is it powered? Yes, I guess you could say so. It is a mecanical device that can function on its own.
Does the pin come out to use it? I believe it would have to.

Some of your other questions are a bit too technical
There are different sizes and shapes of this device. I'm pretty sure that it needs to sit a certain way to function correctly and get the desired results.

Yeees, some words were blacked out.... I didn't want another "Cleaver house" incident
The words did not say what it actually was though. Nor were they instructions...

Nothing to do with looking through or into.
