    I am not entirely sure if this is for real or not. But is this not the most complicated video you have ever seen.

    Grandiose obfuscation if I've ever seen it.

    P.S. If you really need a hint to know whether its real or not, remember that you saw it on the web.

    My head did not just hurt after that, it pretty was brain matter oozing out of my skull. Followed by

    Says right below the video..
    "This video was seen circulating the internet, author unknown. The Retro-Encabulator is a fictional device purportedly manufactured by "Rockwell Automation", according to the video. The video has become popular with engineers due to its humurous use of technobabble."

    "fictional device"...it's engineering humor.

    I must have missed at the bottom, after watching it twice I had a feeling it was fake, considering have a relative that works for rockwell and he never talked that way

    Most things that Rockwell ever made would not have seen the light of day. They were for government. It makes you wonder how much taxpayers paid for that video just so their geeks could chuckle.
