    I've been studying this for a few minutes. Intriguing! - Is it some kind of trap with bait? And is that a camera and microphone? I'm sure I'm wrong on both counts.

    Meow is a clue! Is it an intelligence test for cats?

    I even did a quick google!

    I believe it is a "galena cat whisker detector", an ancient sort of diode. The whisker gently touches the rough surface of galena crystal to detect simple AM radio signal.

    Of corse the whisker here is a thin wire...

    Thanks Luciano. It’s now crystal clear! I had heard of such a device but never actually seen one.

    indeed

    we were taught about these at school, along with those new fangled things called 'transistors'...

    I still prefer valves [tubes]
