    from what I got he said the improvement in the new design over the old is that old parts used to come out of a fan preventing them from turning to put off heat.

    The new one is self contained and spins as much as it wants.

    Everything else was blank.

    Anyway, I`m impressed he`s able to keep a straight face through all that nonsense. The moment he said it was a `crudely conceived` idea, it was clearly a joke. Reminds me of an old SNL ad...I`ll look for it on YouTube, and if I find it I`ll let y`all know.

    This is not a fake, but it was a joke. This was distributed by Rockwell Automotive not long before their buyout my Meritor Automotive. I saw this at the Rockwell/Meritor introduction meeting. But then a company with the free time to create and distribute this video, obviously has some issues..it was probably a good thing they went under...

    Yeah, none of that makes sense, even to an engineer--I would know because I am one. The only part of his rant that could have made some sense was the part saying, "instead of producing energy through magnetic fluxes," or something along those lines--this describes the way a generator works. But yeah, it just sounds stupid.

    I`m assuming that everyone that took that video seriously is either being sarcastic, or has yet to look up gullible in the dictionary. Gibberish, pasted together with seemingly intelligent words. Anyone with a 7th grade vocabulary should have been able to see that. I like how his phrases become more and more rediculous as the video goes on. personally, I thought it was hilarious.

    `The line up consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzal-veins; so fitted to the ambiphaciant lunar wane shaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented...`

    Nice job on that though, it must have taken a long time to come up with all those words...

    You can tell he`s not a real salesman though. Real salesmen would have just said what it did instead of spending five minutes describing the components. The consumers don`t give a sh*t what`s in it as long as it works well. :] Even total technogeeks who might have looked at it and had a joygasm from heaven wouldn`t be able to sit through all that babble.

    I actually know what that is. Some of it was a joke but the equipment and basic "jiberish" was correct. They are also used in tandem with VFD (Variable Frequency Drives). This allows equipment to start up and stop gradually without using sudden bursts of electricity and torque. Also it is connected to an automated computer system called SCADA which allows the user to monitor their equipment in real time while the SCADA program runs them. You can also switch from an auto mode to hand mode where you then can take over the equipment "old school" style and run the machines like in the days before automation. I know, it`s mad boring, but now you know. And knowing is half the battle, Yo Joe!
