Could anyone identify the machinery pictured below?

Some of you will probably have seen it on another site, and I've a feeling it's a hoax, but I'd be interested to hear wht people think it may be before I say what it's alleged to be.

Thanks in advance

Is it a device to separate liquids or between varios materials?

I love this game and you spark some mystery about it too!

However i would apreciate a higher resolution image to see the objects in the background better.

Curius GTG

It's a Flux capacitor?

Looks like it could handle 1.6 jiggawatts.

Looks like a high pressure flow meter.

All stainless says it's food grade, caustic or bio work.

Looks like the foil tape on the walls in the background could be for preventing thermal leakage so it could be some type of extreme low or high temperature lab.

There are a lot of lifting eyes on equipment in there and the ones onthe back are held up vertically. Possible it is unsuitable for human habitation and work is done remotely in that chamber. Could be in a radiation enviroment.

I'm curious as to what this is.

Some sort of an experimental superconductor?

Is the picture correct with all the golden in it?

It looks like the cryogenic cooling chamber for a liquefied gas, such as nitrogen, prior to being sent to the pump diode to cool the amplifier for a thulium fiber laser system.

EDIT: And no, I didn't make that up.
There's even a patent for it. It is used in everything from Military to Telecommunications.

A component to a scanning electron microscope

or a slushy machine from the 7-11 store down the block.

My seven year old just looked at the pic and said, "Mom, is that what they put dead people in?" I didn't even tell her that we were supposed to be guessing what it is. She just chimed in, lol. And for the record, I don't even know what she's talking about because I'm positive she's never seen dead people in anything!

Is it a captured ufo?

After looking at the picture my guess would be a flattened out iron-lung to fit something like a flat alien or the Tofu character from resident evil 2.

After reading the posts though I would guess that the entire room isn't made of gold... it's a light with that color shining over stainless steel.... if I had to take a guess (a real guess) I would go with fraterormus' suggestion. I don't know much about it but hey, it sounds about right!

A time travel device? Please let's not do another Titor nightmare.

I think it could be a new and improved congulator. I recall Col. Klink was very puzzled over this contraption as well. Although, it also has some simularities to a transmogrifier. No, I didn't make this up. Somebody else did.
Really, I wonder what that contraption is?

Looks very CGI with the "just too shiney" golden glow. hard to tell.

It looks very expensive. Stainless steel. Floor drain? Two rigid, probably high pressure lines going into the round manifold...looks medical, but the room doesn't appear sterile enough...lots of fluid use...large hoses on the top...low pressure and high pressure...some sort of weird centrifuge....doomsday device, yup, that's it....for tearing a hole in time-space.

Couldn't guess what it does but it looks like a larger version of the things with flanges on the top that are in the tank behind it. That's almost certainly an o-ring groove around the flange of the large one and what looks like heating/cooling lines coming through. It would be a mighty fancy heat exchanger but who knows in mighty fancy industry like pharma or high grade chemicals. It's a nice piece of work, that's for sure.

The type of lighting and metal kinda makes me think of an explosion proof room........or beer, like the color. MMM, brewery?

Liquid chilled paddle mixer for ice cream, frozen yogurt, etc... Hey, it could be! I'm bettin' it's gonna be something basically normal.

Its the unit for making liquidfied gas.

Super cold liquid hydrogen is pumped through the flat part and a compressed gas is pumped in to cool and liquidfie.

if you can't baffle them with brilliance.
feed them a line of BS.

Its probably the next iPhone generation, 'iPhone Gold'

Ahhh nevermind that, another night at the bar, why am I so lost?

Well, from what can be seen in the pic, everything has the same golden look, so i am betting this pic has been modified, do you happen to have the original picture so that we can check the file info?

I just can't find a reason why everything, 'every single thing' on that room is the same color or material, do you have any?

God, i hate the word, but i gotta say it, CGI? original image manipulated to look like this? completely CGI image?

How long do you expect to wait? do you realize that if you wait for too long people will start thinking that you posted this only to gain points and that this is a premeditated hoax? i mean, why retain the source or explanation and ask for people to post replies to your thread if not to gain points and starts, flags? do you see what i mean? at some point, someone will throw the first stone..


Oh yeah, the shiny part in the flat side, looks too yellow as if someone modified the image to gain that golden look, incidentally, i and think i made quite a few misspells and other similar horrific mistakes
