Hey Electrical Instructa-People. What is this? Answered

I was walking down the street I happened upon this. Being who I am, I picked it up. You know what it does? it seems to be 5 buttons and 2 Led lights and some wires on a circuit board. Any clue what I might be able to do with this? Grrr I expected a picture but it wont let me add it. If anyone with high instructables reads this my uploader/add image thing isnt working. thanks.

I'm willing to bed dollars to donuts it's the control face for an answering machine.

Are there any SMD chips on the solder-side of the PCB? Maybe you could post a picture of the solder-side of the PCB?

If I had to take a wild guess, I would say that it was on the front panel of a VCR or DVD player. See the silkscreen markings "STOP", "PAUSE", and "MADE IN JAPAN"?

Is it rectified mains power? Is it batteries? No, i'ts SuperCapMan!

Impossible to answer without seeing it, I'm afraid.

it could range from a remote control to a key finder, it would help is you were able to describe it in a bit more detail. For example the color of the leds, other components in it, etc..
