NAB Urban Legend?

Okay, I have to ask whether this is true or just an urban legend:

A major provider of editing equipment was planning to show their new, voice-actuated editing console at NAB. Problem was, it wasn't ready. So the "editor" on the stage would give a verbal command, which the EDITOR behind the curtain would punch into the machine manually, and the edit would magically perform. Very impressive, until someone tripped on a curtain and revealed the Wizard of Oz and the trick.

That can't be a true story. Or... is it?

btw, I agree with all the comments here about NAB, both pro and con. Mainly though, I'm just sort of tired of NAB.
