Guys this thread has really gone over board quite a while ago. We all know everyone on here is really nice and friendly so we really shouldn't scare people off having these heated discussions openly. Feel free to invite me to a private discussion about it but I won't keep commenting on here.
There is a chance that the descriptor in the title is possibly a lab, and, it could possibly be some form of crafting station for working with minerals, ie a laboratory of sorts where we can interact with our minerals to create other elements orwhat not. There again it also could be a shot from an earlier build where they were testing out designs. It could be a number of things. So I am open on that one, seems plausible to me.
They probably have a ton of shots, old and new, and there is no saying what will and will not end up in game. They also maybe had a naming convention to classify different test objects into categories, relating to porting, trading, esources etc, and that could be an early iteration of one, an earlier design conceptor, it could be a real thing. In the end we will see. ;p
Not to mention some alien tech may be interactive, and many more not so. We won't know which is which unless they show a new vid where they do interact with some tech, or they let us discover it ourselves.
