Post your ideas here about what you think this is a picture of. I will post the answer in a few days.

Hint:
When I am working on a problem I never think about beauty. I only think about how to solve the problem. But when I have finished, if the solution is not beautiful, I know it is wrong.

It looks to me to be sheet metal, very nicely formed, with a handle on top, two latches on top, and some rivets in the bottom right. Now, it's function? Good quetion.

Maybe a very cool Operator Interface carrying system. That would be neato.

3 gusses...

1. Your new suit-case

2. Your programming/driving place

3. The place you keep your Duck Tape at!

It's your case for your operater interface, ie: joysicks, and operator stu-ey! I see form has fallen into place nicely with function!!!

:D

Stephanie and FirstAE2004 you guys hit is right on the head. I had Serta custom make the mattress for me. Actually, that's not true but it's a good idea. I'll think about it.

The rest of you are getting warmer. Full pictures come tommorow. (Friday)

My guess is that it is a operator interface, that the suitcase seperates apart that the operator and driver have hand held controllers....


Thats my guess

You guys are just too good at guessing. Of course I guess I didn't really make it difficuly by posting in the electrical forum huh? Anyway, I have started a new thread with a link to the photo gallery. You can get to it here. (http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2737)
