Valencia pranksters up to something again

All has been quiet at this mysterious apartment on Valencia at Liberty since their botched escape attempt, so naturally I was intrigued as to what this latest piece of gadgetry might be.  If you’re too lazy to walk by yourself, there’s a few closer looks after the jump:

There’s some wide plastic tubing that leads all the way up to the apartment above where it appears to be connected to the living room.  At street level, there’s this old slide show contraption and some curious lighting inside, but sadly no motion pictures.  I yelled into the tube in hopes that my voice would be transmitted upstairs and the device would be activated, but nothing happened, so as of press time we’re still clueless.

What is it?  A seizure inducer?  Hypnosis transmitter?  Perhaps some knowledgeable street detective can fill us in on this mystery!

Old-school Hollywood-style bed sheet escape ends badly

    I bet it’s a speaker of some kind, and they speak to people who walk by.

    I sure hope they didn’t mutilate a good wide-angle lens attachment in the process!!

    It looks like a camera and the designated area to stand would make sense.

    It looks like an upside down periscope (using a video camera instead of mirrors).

    Awwwwww they gave me a little brown paper package tied up with string and inside was a fortune cookie that read “can I have your number” andohmygodyouguysorsocute. – Last night they had a little bell for people to ring and then they dropped down presents for everyone. The person next to me got “there is nothing to learn here” they musta been super into me. can probably see down my shirt from up there.

    Basically, they have got some minimum things which may have
    to be met so that you can qualify for that new VA loan my website although they act
    as surrogate judges, they operate in a political nether world where
    they actively be employed in campaigns, contribute money and endorse candidates.
