I remember an episode with Jesse ventura that had an FBI agent (?) who explained some of the tools they used to spy. One of them was a rock which would record all conversations nearby. I think that rock could simply be an old model which needs an external power source.

looks VERY easy to fake. and the nature of the site seems to point to an easy homemade oddity that probably generated some revenue. though I wouldn't mind seeing what would happen if this thing was given some power.

There have been companies like Bechtel and others that were contracted to make security tools and other types of things and have them be perfectly disguised .. Like the ground sensors at Area-51..

But assuming it's a real rock thousands of years old the pins should have corroded away.

I agree that it may be some kind of fake artifact by the guy who found it back in 98 (I think), and that it would be relatively easy to manufacture if it is just a rock and a plug with nothing internal...However, in the past few years the guy has been taking it on the road for media exposure (coast to coast, etc.) and it still has not been dismissed as a fraud; holding up to a good deal of outside scrutiny. He has apparently also had some limited tests and measurements performed on it without it being debunked as a modern faked piece.
