Rauschenberg erases de Kooning

From Open Culture: "In 1953, Willem de Kooning was one of the world's most revered living painters and Robert Rauschenberg was a talented rising star, just a year out of art school. In this clip, Rauschenberg tells of how, armed with nothing but chutzpah and a bottle of Jack Daniels, he knocked on de Kooning's door and flat-out asked the master for an original drawing — so he could erase it. De Kooning not only acquiesced, but even chose a drawing he particularly liked. Though it was controversial at the time, 'Erased de Kooning' is now considered a conceptual art classic. And its influence endures: Last year a student at Brown out-Rauschenberg'd Rauschenberg by erasing de Kooning's Wikipedia entry."

What are they?

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Note: the answer is so arcane that I've decided to make this a contest with a prize, namely an iPad 2 Bone Horn Stand that Cyberguys was kind enough to give me for just such an auspicious occasion.

The person who comes closest to getting it right wins.

If nobody comes close, then I'll pick the best answer and the individual who proffered it will reap the reward.

Hint: each of the objects pictured is bigger than a bread box.

Another: Not found in the natural world.
