Basically, a local radio has a challenge where if you guess the source of this sound... win a bunch of cash. So I come to the Pit for help. What the hell is this sound?
These are things that people have already guessed wrong:

An old credit card machine
An old rotary telephone
An old cassette player
An old camera flash
An old ViewMaster
An old abacus

The radio station did say though that it is something old, and that it was recorded at their office place.

Any ideas?

It's probably the sound of you not having much of a chance of winning.

So we're supposed to figure the answer for you so you can win the money and not share it with us?

No. You get no help, my friend.
Do you feel warm within your cage?

And have you figured out yet -

I think it sounds like a typewriter or some sort of gun, but let's keep them coming.

Edit: that video is supposed to be a pixelated video of the actual thing that makes the sound.

I'd recognize that sound anywhere.

It's a plastic banana machine.

You don't want to know.

From further examination, this is exactly what it is. Makes every bit of sense.

You can even tell in the video he's putting his time card in and it's getting stamped (or whatever it's called).
