I should have figured that out. I read about a high-profile engineering firm that interviews applicants by presenting them with a briefcase full of various mechanical and electronic objects. The applicant has to guess what these things do, to the best of their ability, based on their experience and raw reasoning power. Wish I had a link, this was a print article. Pop Sci, or Discover, or Scientific American.

Anyway, please don't reveal the green thing. That one has stumped us for a good long while, now.
