20A very large device in the back of the room, full of moving parts and glowing pieces, it's in tip top shape, cleaner than any other thing in the lab. Ten buttons labelled with an ancient script are on the front of the machine, upon pressing one, the device whirrs to life, steam arising from ever crack in the machine, the machine emits a loud clanking noise, as if a box of nuts were falling down a set of stairs. After 15 minites of this process the machine produces a cup of coffee. Each of the buttons is a different coffee setting.
21A demon contained within a circle covered in runes.
22A Cybernetic (animal, animal hybrid, demon, humanoid, monster). This creature is (asleep in a corner, chained to a table, chained to a wall, acting as a lab assistant, reading notes & mumbling to itself, standing guard, wearing a lab coat & performing various experiments).

50A brick of black granite, with a summoning circle carved into the top of it. A pentagram and eye-watering runes that remain fuzzy no matter how much you concentrate on them have been etched into the top of it and filled in with a silver inlay. Wires rise up from the pentagram to above the center of the block where they meet up in a small ring, inside of which sits a regular old chicken egg. A large rusty electrical switch sits next to the block, with wires running into between them. If your flip the switch the pentagram and runes light up, and sparks travel from them up the wires to the egg, and then the sparks disappear. If you then crack open the egg, you find that it was scrambled inside it's own shell.

The pie also has the ability to gather the subconscious thoughts of whoever passes by, so the pie knows the entire layout of the mad scientist's home/lab. However, it has (ironically) a deathly allergy to eggs other than its own. Also, should someone eat a piece of the pie, they will gain some of its knowledge and a permanent increase to intellect.
