If you're talking about the white thingy with the black bar on top-- it almost looks like one of those flashlights with the rotating/aim-able heads.
The black thing with the buttons is probably a kitchen timer:
Why is the black thing it's attached to tilted? What's holding it up??
Is the cylindrical-looking thing behind the black object connected? They're not-quite pointing in the right direction, and look to be off-center of the white thing with the black handle...
The white thing has a black patch on this side. And a circular something-- is that a hand-crank?
It could almost be a RONCO product... or a battery-powered can opener, but I googled for both and didn't find a match.
