What’s the strange object above?

Cracked by everyone…

Answer:

The telectroscope, an art installation that allows people to “see” from London to NY. This one had a videophone inside it…

    The Telectroscope, which allows people in London and NY to see each other.


  9. The Telectroscope

    Positioned at a spot near Tower Bridge, it allows people to watch their counterparts in New York, peering through an identical scope near the Brooklyn Bridge.

    It is the invention of Paul St George, a 53-year-old artist in based in London who – using broadband internet cable to transmit video images between the two venues at high speed – gives the impression that the two cities are connected via a telescope under the Atlantic sea.
