Big Brother???

I’ve asked this question before, but never on GMG.  I have yet to get an answer.

Can anyone out there tell me what these things are???  They look like polaroid pictures. Speed checkers, car counters, solar gizmos, mere reflectors???   Big Brother seems to be watching for something, I guess.  

I used to notice one random one on a rock…somewhere near Exit 15 heading North on 128 in Manchester.  That damn thing wouldn’t budge.  It stood there through rain, snow, wind…you name it.  It kind of looked like an old iPod glued to a rock.  I became a bit obsessed with checking to see if it was still standing day after day.  It always was.  Sooner or later, I started to notice them everywhere. Some are bright blue….some are black or grey.  They are on street signs, on the medium strips, on guard rails….everywhere!  For some reason, I only really notice them going to and from work in Beverly, but I did notice a bunch near Gillette Stadium in the fall while stuck in traffic leaving a Patriots game.  With so many of them now, my love affair with the first lonely one on the rock has diminished.  I keep forgetting to check if it is still there.  I’m sure it is.

Ummm, and, for the record, before Joey goes all crazy-ass LMGTFY on me.  I have tried “Googling” it several different ways and haven’t had any luck!
