    No, this is not two days early, it is real! Extremely cutting-edge engineering!

    The classic HP-200B audio oscillator is leveraged here to enable the unilateral phase detractors! For more information, see the latest Keysight (ex Hewlett Packard, ex Agilent Technologies) Promotional Video!

    Look carefully at his index finger! (at about 1 minute, 30 seconds into the video)

    Although I ordered it some months ago, I finally received my Zero Beat Peeler:

    I personally prefer the original. The story I got about this is there was an engineer at Rockwell that used to like using all these 'terms' with the newbie engineers. One enterprising person kept track of all of them and wrote a script. Upon the man's retirement, they presented him this 'production' which was only supposed to stay inside the four walls (or cubical walls). However, it was too funny to not let everyone else in on it. I don't know if anyone got into any trouble but it sure played well for over 4 million hits!

    Thanks for posting. This one is considerate homage to the original.

    Wow: I was involved in a similar project in the 1970s where our unit looked somewhat similar. It was a prototype known as a cyclonic rotamater. It didn't start out well. We setup the prototype for a number of high level government scientists and high level Navy military officers.

    Our system had a lot of #47 lamps with red, yellow and green lenses, similar to those shown below:


    The demonstration was setup in a darkened SCIF (Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility). As everyone settled in, and the SCIF lights were dimmed, a co-worker fired up the system into the "standby" mode. The system included a number of "YUK20" (AN/UYK-20) computers. The system was in several 19-inch equipment rack cabinets. It was impressive to hear all of the various blowers and fans come up to speed. As that was happening, most of the #47 lamps behind bright yellow lenses lit up, meaning everything was working properly, but in the standby mode. A Navy Admiral announced loudly to the whole group, in Navy language, that because of all the yellow lights, it reminded him that he needed pee before we got started. Our demonstration was delayed for a number of minutes as guests went off to the head (rest room).

    I am an 'alumn' of Mare Island CSTSC. I learned the AN/UYK-20 inside and out for DS 'A' school!

    I'll see yours and raise you mine...


    Encabulator poker is vicious.
