"The Retro-Encabulator is a fictional device purportedly manufactured by Rockwell Automation, according to a video that has been circulating on the Internet. The video has become popular with engineers due to its humorous use of technobabble. The Retro-Encabulator implements the "crudely conceived idea" of generating "inverse reactive current for use in unilateral phase detractors" and "automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters".
The description of the device, which uses made-up, technical-sounding terms, as well as meaningless strings of engineering jargon, makes it clear to engineer viewers that this is not a real device manufactured by Rockwell Automation." - WikiPedia
