Item #: SCP-130
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-130 is to be kept in its room at all times, and no attempts are to be made to move it unless authorized by O5 personnel. No less than three Level 3 personnel are to accompany anyone entering SCP-130's chamber. Two Level 3 personnel are to be stationed outside SCP-130's chamber at all times, rotated on 4 hour shifts. No network connections, outside hardware or software, or sentient technology is to be exposed to SCP-130 under any circumstances.
Description: SCP-130 is a PC of unknown model. Attached to SCP-130's tower is a 7.6cm (3in) glass cylinder with a radius of 2.5cm (1in). Suspended inside is what appears to be a human brain, attached via various cables to the metallic base of the cylinder (hereafter referred to as SCP-130b).
SCP-130 has no apparent function other than as a means of communication with SCP-130b. Whatever is typed into the keyboard appears on the screen, which, like the tower, has no apparent power source or switch. SCP-130b invariably reacts to typing as attempted communication, and responds via a computerized voice through SCP-130's speakers. Though cynical and condescending, SCP-130b is extremely helpful and appears to be a repository of knowledge. Though SCP-130b has yet to be untruthful, interviews with it confirm that it is capable of lying as well as withholding information. Questions as to the origins and locations of SCPs are not answered, but other scientific queries about them are.
No attempts to connect SCP-130 to the Internet, install programs, attach media devices, or create any other interaction between SCP-130 and outside technology are allowed. It is too valuable a scientific tool for bored security personnel to be attempting to use it for recreation.
