What is this? A pint of dragon fire ice cream? An alien planet model? Speckled clay? Amazingly, it's the cross section of a golf ball. Photographer, James Friedman, captured the innards of different golf balls and unexpectedly revealed a core that look more like they're from outer space than anything in this world.

Looking like something out of the Matrix or some sci-fi horror movie, this stunning photo captures something rather impressive. But what the hell is it? A robotic surgeon, perhaps? Maybe the next generation of badass 3D printers? Or could it be a massive robotic eye?

This bright, bobbly surface looks like something from another planet — but it's actually a photograph of something that's quite common on Earth. Can you work out what it is?

These objects seems to vary from shapeless blob to chaotic scribble — but they are in fact short-lived structures that have been captured in fine 3D detail for the first time. Can you work out what they are?

This ragged cloud of colour looks messy and unstructured — but in fact it's a rare and unusual view of one of the most fundamental things in science. Can you work out what it is?

The grain gives away that it's obviously made of wood, but what is this tshirt-shaped slab of lumber supposed to be? The latest in eco-friendly fashion? An alternative to undershirts that's easy to clean with a sanding block? Not even close.

The British artist David Marsh has devised a clever way to combine his two favourite things — Adobe design software Pantone colour swatches and album cover art — with a nod to Pointillism. Each finished piece uses 1369 Pantone swatches to recreate a pixelated version of some of the most famous album artwork of the past half-century.

Are these geodes? Is that a view from inside Hef's grotto? Kate Bush's brainmap? Nope! None of the above.

Is that a stained glass window dedicated to man's excess? Nope. A MoMA exhibit capturing our disposable lifestyles? Sorry. A corporate logo treatment for a recycling facility? Not exactly, but it is related to turning trash into something beautiful.

Is that a proton torpedo exploding through space? Nah. Maybe the world's most incredibly unsafe powerline crackling in the night sky? Or how about a CGI bit from The Hobbit? Well, no, but close. It has to do with a dragon, see.

Um, is Disney making bongs now? What is this weird-looking gadget spied on the show floor of CES? Post your answer in the comments! I’ll be checking in — if you’re struggling, I’ll update the post with clue on Sunday. Good luck! Updated

Do you know what this fractalicious alien-like object is? Post your answer in the comments! I'll be checking in — if you're struggling, I'll update the post with another image later in the afternoon. Good luck! Updated

Is this a power pack? Nah. A pico projector? Nope. Is it a cube? It claims to be, but it looks more like a rectangular prism to me. Will it really redefine an entire category? Looks aside, we're not so sure about that, but Logitech sure thinks it will. So what is this thing?

This isn't the teeth of a machine, the chainmail shirt your cousin uses for larping, nor the DNA sequence of Justin Bieber's love child.

Just what the hell is going on here? A piece of candy under the microscope? An oil slick? Are we all on drugs right now? No — well, maybe you are — but this picture isn't the result. It's from spaaa-aaace.
