Default "What is it?" #88

I always liked the number 88, not sure why.....

The tool pictured is one of the easy ones to get but to make it interesting tell us what it is and what is different about the other side.... Some of you will be getting the x-ray glasses out others the NASA maping to 3D software other will just know.......

So to win you need to tell us what this is and what is different about the two sides of it.

OK it's easy so lets go for just 50 points but I'll give you 50 more points if you can tell me what 88 is in binary...... or hex or even what the square root is.... just tell me what the answer is and the one of the three math options answers..... OH yes be the first one with the whole answer to get the points......

Hey so was I....... the math looks good but you didn't answer the what the other side looks like...... I'll save you the points but please tell us what is different about the other side ........ i.e. one is _________ the other side is is _________.

Wow that is a lot of digits for the root, do that by hand?

I know what #88 is. I like that number too ED. #88 is Dale Jarretts car number. And one is FLAT and the other side is ROUND.
