Canadian Don Clark found this strange contraption in an antique store. It's a
weather satellite. It has several measuring instruments. There is an Evoluon sticker
at the bottom, so it must have come from the souvenir shop. Does anyone recognize it?

Joop van de Velden explains this one:
This Evoluon artefact I have is a strip of paper with your weight and the date printed on it. It was automatically produced by a machine when you stepped on a platform. Although the serial number ("volgnummer") had stopped incrementing, the weight measurement worked fine. It seems my weight was 58.4 kg in december '73 (I was 16 years old) and that was dressed of course :-). I also had great fun with with measuring my weight before and after going to the bathroom.
