Pop quiz!

Time for another contest, class:

These gadgets were in an MRI-supply catalog that (for unknown reasons) showed up at my office. So let's forget I told you that.

Take out your #2 pencils, and try to come up with some creative answers as to what they might be. I've already started you off with three ideas. 

These items are:

A. The latest in BDSM equipment.

B. Props from the next Hannibal Lecter movie.

C. Um... stuff used in a new Olympic sport? From, uh, that country over on that other continent?

1. New style of racecar helmet. Cooler in the heat of the track!
2. Burrito stand. Confusing, because it's actually sitting on its side.
3. Chair modification that compensates for pressure points. When you move it moves so you're more comfortable during the day. Size appears misleading. Computer attachment connected to application that measures body composition; will act as weight-loss (or gain) aide should the owner wish.

Do I win a prize?

1 - That appears to be either a head brace for precision imaging of the head, or an older style head coil for doing specialized brain imaging. The thumb screw pads are for immobilizing the head.

2 - This is an extremity coil. It's used for imaging the joints of the knee, elbow, wrist etc.

2 - This is a shoulder coil. It's used for imaging the shoulder.

On the left: a new helmet for Imperial Storm Troopers that allows them to actually see what they're shooting at, in hopes of improving their notoriously poor aim.

In the middle: why should only guys be able to easily pee outdoors? With this new portable toilet, women can join in the fun as well!

On the right: nobody will be able to tell that you're actually wearing a toupee! Well, okay, maybe they will...

What are the approximate sizes of these items? I can't tell if they are miniature, pocket size, or roughly the size of a terlit.

2 iPurity - purity ring for catholic males - wirelessly alerts your priest to every unsanctioned-by-holy-matrimony erection.

3 downloads your brain into a computer to back up your memories, personality, and thoughts in case of traumatic brain injury or untimely death. The new, space saving, energy efficient alternative to cryogenics. One DNA sample, and regular brain back-ups will ensure that you can live again (just as soon as human cloning is perfected, and if the ethical implications are disregarded).
