Dave could pull apart that dyson, re-engineer it and get the mega blaster hair styler, that may even get you up to 88 mph!

how do you know?

if Dave has not reply you, we will not be sure.
if something can select, how cant it be intelligent? if something is intelligent, how cant it exist?

Obviously, Dave's tear-down of a flux capacitor is long overdue.

Wouldn't mind it if it were the Agilent  ;D. I bought it and I like it tough I’m not able to "Take it apart". Agilent seem to have hidden some screws or something near the back of the meter, and since the thing cost me dearly I don't want to ruin it by forcing it open  :P.

And for the video, that dude is either a marketer who just spits out the word given to him regardless of what the mean, or he is able to keep a serious poker face whilst talking bollocks.....

And well what Dave really has in store for us, I don't know but we will soon find out.

For one's references:

    Here at Rockwell Automation's world head quarters, research has been proceeding to develop a line of automation products that establishes new standards for quality, technological leadership and operating excellence. With customer success as our primary focus, work has been proceeding on the crudely conceived idea of an instrument that would not only provide inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors, but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters.

    Such an instrument comprised of Dodge gears and bearings, Reliance Electric motors, Allen-Bradley controls, and all monitored by Rockwell Software is Rockwell Automation's retro-encabulator.

    Now basically the only new principle involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes, it's produced by the modial interaction of magneto reluctance and capacitive duractance. The original machine had a base plate of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings ran a direct line with the panametric fam.

    The line-up consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzul vanes so fitted to the ambaphascient lunar wain shaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented. The main winding was of the normal lotus-odeltoid type placed in panendurmic semi-bulloid slots of the stator. Every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible tremmy pipe to the differential girdle spring on the up-end of the grammeters.

    Moreover, whenever fluorescent square motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with the drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce sinusoidal depleneration.

    The retro-encabulator has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of Milford trunnions. It's available soon, wherever Rockwell Automation products are being sold.

Check out my thread in the reviews section. I'll give some pointers on how to take the case apart.

Nobody mentioned the new Agilent scope yet? Would be well awesome to get a review of one.

I'm going to guess it's one of the new Agilent value line scopes, but I won't ignore the possibility it's an average responding spankometer.

Also, wow, I haven't heard mention of the Turboencabulator in a long time! All the jargon reminds me of the old tomahawk missile promo from General Dynamics. When I was a kid my father was in the USAF and they had a bunch of the old promotional video for various weapon systems. They were like 30 to 90 minute infomercials, and usually had some neat video of an old jalopy getting destroyed by military weaponry. I recalled the one from the tomahawk when a chunk showed up on the internet. It's part of the narration about the guidance subsystem, and reads as follows . . .

Quote
The missile knows where it is at all times. It knows this because it knows where it isn't. By subtracting where it is from where it isn't, or where it isn't from where it is (whichever is greater), it obtains a difference or deviation. The guidance subsystem uses deviation to generate corrective commands to drive the missile from a position where it is to a position where it isn't and arriving at a position where it wasn't, it now is. Consequently, the position where it is is now the position that it wasn't, and it follows that the position that it was is now the position that it isn’t. In the event that the position that it is in is not the position that it wasn’t, the system has acquired a variation, the variation being the difference between where the missile is and where it wasn’t. If variation is considered to be a significant factor, it too may be corrected by the GEA. However, the missile must also know where it was. The missile guidance computer scenario works as follows. Because a variation has modified some of the information the missile has obtained, it is not sure just where it is. However, it is sure where it isn’t, within reason, and it knows where it was. It now subtracts where it should be from where it wasn’t, or vice versa, and by differentiating this from the algebraic sum of where it shouldn’t be and where it was, it is able to obtain the deviation and its variation, which is called error.

If that doesn't seem too bad in print, try the audio. Here's a link to the ytmnd page I found it on (caution, turn down your volume). If it still doesn't seem that bad, you are an engineer!

Just read this on the Elektor weekly mailer:

http://www.elektor.com/news/new-deposition-process-makes-leds-brighter.1691030.lynkx?utm_source=UK&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=news

That blurb is oh so much like listening to the retroincabulator spiel, only problem is they left the dingle arm out!
