Kaelicles - SCP Drafts

Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be held in a standard anomalous object container in Site-19. Any testing regarding SCP-XXXX must be authorized by Dr. Valor beforehand. Any transfer of data from SCP-XXXX to any computer or video storage device must be reported to Dr. Valor.

Description: SCP-XXXX is what appears to be a heavily modified loudspeaker with the message "prototype" engraved on the chassis. The microphone has been replaced with a touch-screen LED monitor with a USB port located on the right side of the frame. The dimensions of this monitor are approximately 0.2m x 0.2m x 0.05m, and the frame is constructed from a currently unknown alloy. This alloy (designated XXXXar) is impervious to all forms of physical damage, rendering study of the internal components of the monitor impossible.

The internal parts of SCP-XXXX have also been replaced with components that are non-standard in the assembly of a non-anomalous loudspeaker.
- The speaker has been replaced with an unknown component, which is an approximately 0.1m tall cylinder with a plating of XXXXar.
- The magnet has replaced with a unknown component.
- The voice coil has been replaced with a combination of copper and silver wires.
- The suspension has been replaced with multiple rubber bands, and the adhesives have been replaced with stronger alternatives.
- The dustcap, yoke, and surround have been completely removed.

Once the chassis of SCP-XXXX is placed on the forehead of any individual, the monitor on SCP-XXXX will activate, showing a prompt for a date in the format of month/day/year. Once a date is entered, the monitor will begin to show an audio/video recording1 of the subject's point of view during the specified date. This footage can be exported to any electronic device that has both audio/video capabilities and a standard USB port. SCP-XXXX also has audio/video recording storage capabilities, however it is not known how to access these recordings from the device itself.

The quality of the video shown by SCP-XXXX is directly proportional to the difference between the current date and the date entered into the monitor. There have been exceptions to this principle, but there is currently no correlation between these exceptions. The audio quality of the recording is not affected by this principle.

Additional Information:

Initial Recovery: SCP-XXXX was discovered in the residence of PoI █████ ██████████, who had been attempted to blackmail the SCP Foundation with classified information. Once PoI had stopped communicating with the SCP Foundation, MTF Unit Beta-9 ("Mindscapers") was dispatched for the retrieval of PoI . Mindscapers discovered PoI's residence in ruin along with no sign of PoI. A modified loudspeaker was discovered on PoI's desk, along with blueprints that were heavily damaged by fire. After an initial examination of internal components, the loudspeaker was sent to researchers to determine possible anomalous qualities. Initial testing showed anomalous qualities, and the loudspeaker was designated as SCP-XXXX. Files of what are presumed to be exported audio/video recordings were also found on PoI's computer, which were all heavily corrupted, except for one titled "bugtest_13.mp4". This .mp4 file consisted of a audio/video recording dated at 1/5/20██, which was 24 hours in length. Hours 1-9 of the recording were completely corrupted, and hours 9-18 were uneventful. The subject entered REM sleep at hour 20, which lead to a video recording of what the subject was apparently dreaming. This effect has not been replicated in any experiments of SCP-XXXX while in Foundation possession. PoI █████ ██████████ was declared missing on 1/6/20██.

Addendum-XXXX-01:

"I am tired of having to repeat this, DO NOT USE SCP-XXXX WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORIZATION. If one of you breaks it, I know I won't hear the end of it. If this keeps happening, I'm going to have to upgrade security for SCP-XXXX." - Dr. Valor

Addendum-XXXX-02: Security for SCP-XXXX has been upgraded. Any personnel who are found to have handled SCP-XXXX without proper authorization are subject to suspension from active duty, effective immediately.
