Engineer-speak

I think this guy was a science advisor on Star Trek (or at least on Voyager 😐 )

Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty transmission business. We were getting ready to tape our first introduction video, as a warm up, the professional narrator began what has become a legend within the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down, this became the biggest talk in the industry, vs our new product which we were introducing. I think you will enjoy this once in a lifetime performance from this gentleman.

Happy Friday!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. For more good stuff like this by Rockwell, do a search for “retroencabulator” and/or “turboencabulator”. They are truly marvels of engineering.

  2. Simply marvelous!

  3. The Wikipedia turboencabulator article would seem to refute the “off the cuff/nothing written down” description:

    “Circa 1977 Bud Haggart, an actor who appeared in many industrial training films in and around Detroit, performed in the first film realization of the description and operation of the “Turboencabulator”, using a truncated script adapted from the 1955 “The Institution of Electrical Engineers, Students Quarterly Journal”. Bud convinced director Dave Rondot and the film crew to stay after the filming of an actual GMC Trucks project training film to realize the Turboencabulator spot.”

  4. My favorite use on this on the show Junkyard Wars (incidentally my favorite TV show ever) when one of the team members is describing his machine to the judges: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I6Sx6Calsmg
