That's the one everybody misidentifies... often as being a NSFW device. 

It's a Spiratone Bird's Eye adapter. Basically, a parabolic mirror that adjustably mounts in front of your base lens. The glass tube holds everything and is shot through; there's also a close-up lens incorporated because you need to focus on the mirror. Here's an old example of the kind of image it produces straight out of the camera:

I now also have an Egg (very different build, same idea) and several homemade units using Christmas tree ornaments or a silvered lightbulb as the reflector.
