Okay, we've found out about the Radio Shack Ring Of Death. The creator is one Toby Paddock, who, aside from being obviously deranged, took the time to pen this missive:
Each reverb have an added delayed-only signal output that feeds into
the next in the circle. I haven't spent much time with it yet so I don't
really know what it wants to do. Cheesy old sci-fi movie noises and
obnoxious feedback are easy to get from it.
The lucite box is a neon oscillator 4x4x4 grid "art thing". Not really
synth-diy related, but it does have oscillators modulated by other
oscillators. Sort of. I would like to try to get some signals out of it. It
is powered from +/-160V (20uA) with a floating ground and I'm guessing the
ground floats around a bit as the lamps fire.
So, there you have it.
