What is this on the top of the Prius?

I like to say it's a Google Maps device, but it's smaller and different looking than the ones that I have seen....

The thing on the roof is probably a solar panel so that the Prius batteries can be charged. In that way, the car has about 52 horsepower. LOL.

Looks like an urn with maybe the ashes of the Toyota Execs in it?
