The Orb-o-matic was a gadget in 'All 4 One' that was invented by Dr. Croid. Dr. Croid designed this as a children's play toy that could be use in hostile environments. The heroes used this to conduct electricity to power up Tesla Orbs, to activate certain machinary.
The orbs themselves were made of a durable, semi-toxic polymer alloy.
