Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is locked away inside of a guarded storage unit in Site-15, plugged into a type B power outlet with a 120VAC AC adapter. Access to SCP-XXXX requires a
Level 2 or higher clearance level.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a custom-made laptop created in 2008, by █████, who is currently in Site-15 working as an Assistant Researcher. He had planned to make a computer which would be able to translate a majority of the world's languages into English for his bedridden wife, who wanted to travel the world and experience different cultures. After completion, █████ was reportedly speaking incoherently for the next few hours, before being sent to the local hospital, where he was temporarily diagnosed with Wernicke's aphasia. Three weeks later, he woke up able to speak normally again. The anomalous effects of SCP-XXXX became known to the foundation when the laptop was transported to his wife, when he, his wife and a nurse were found having a conversation in gibberish. SCP-XXXX and its owner were then transported to Site-15 by a containment team.

When SCP-XXXX comes in contact with a living being, human or not, the being will begin making unintelligible sounds, which has lead to strange situations, such as a cat producing sounds which would be normally impossible. In addition, the laptop itself appears to be damaged, as any letters are replaced with complete gibberish, including those in images. Inspection of the laptop shows strange alterations to the graphics card, and attempts to reverse these alterations have been proven impossible. Replacing the graphics card has been shown futile, as the laptop continues to act anomalously.
