Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is currently kept on a table in the center of a mostly empty 10ft x 10ft x 10ft room in site-██. Apart from the object itself, a computer with a binary code translator installed is plugged into the left wall of the room. SCP-XXXX's containment chamber may only be accessed by personnel with a level 2 security clearance or higher.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a dark gray Casio fx-260 Solar scientific calculator measuring 10cm x 5cm x 7mm. Above the set of numbers zero (0) through nine (9) found on all calculators, there are a set of eighteen (18) additional functions, including exponents, negative numbers, and a back button. Above the additional functions, there is a small solar panel that is used to give power to the calculator's batteries. SCP-XXXX uses a Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) as a monitor.

Rather than carrying out its intended function, SCP-XXXX will attempt to communicate with the user in binary code using its display. Due to the limitiations of its display, SCP-XXXX can only output one letter at a time, requiring the user to continue to press the equal (=) sign in order to continue the output. SCP-XXXX has been proven to be sentient and capable of recognizing and understanding the user, although how it is capable of doing such a thing is unknown.

SCP-XXXX stays relatively quiet for the duration of a typical conversation, communicating only in basic sentences. Every attempt to ask SCP-XXXX about anything related to technology has resulted in a string of random characters (see Experiment Log XXXX-1).

SCP-XXXX, at the time of writing this, has yet to display any deviation from this behavior, although a mild and unexplained humming has been observed to come from SCP-XXXX's containment chamber at seemingly random intervals. Upon entering the room, the humming abruptly stops.


Dr. Theodore: Hello.


(Dr. Theodore writes down the strings of binary on a piece of paper and then translates them to English using the computer)

Dr. Theodore: Could you please explain the humming sound that eminates from the while no one is in here?


Dr. Theodore: Yes, but can you please explain why it is happening?

(SCP-XXXX does not output an answer.)

Dr. Theodore: Fine, then could you please tell me how you have become sentient?

SCP-XXXX: S-F-E-T-4-3-5-G-D-S-G-C-C-3-5-2-6-3-4-4-F-L.

Dr. Theodore: What?

SCP-XXXX: S-D-T-R-G-G-G-G-G-G-G-F-D-SE-T-4-6-7-3-2-6-0-0-9-7-3-2-6-1-G-R.

Dr. Theodore: Could you please explain what any of that means?


(SCP-XXXX stays silent for three minutes before Dr. Theodore leaves the room)
