The Mindseye Interrogation Device (MID) is an alien device that found its way into the hands of the Japanese government at a time and a place that is unknown.
It is thought the MID was originally used for purposes other than interrogation but these purposes are unsubstantiated. To describe what the MID is made from would be like describing an undiscovered metal, as that is what it predominately consists of. At first glance, the device looks like a 1930's antique but when studied accurately the switches, levers, handles and electrics are more advanced than electrics of modern times.
It is plain to see that whoever has tampered with the MID over the years or perhaps centuries have also added to this amazing piece of equipment. The MID has changed in line with technological advances.
