blending; adjective
Descriptor of something that works so well, it is almost as if done by magic. Usually refers to software that works behind-the-scenes to solve some problem algorithmically.
"The Xbox One terms such ability 'automagical,' and while that’s a marketing buzzword that probably shouldn’t be attached to anything that doesn’t involve Tinker Bell, it’s admittedly pretty neat."
Etymology : A blend of the adjectives "Automatic" and "Magical". "Automatic" refers to a process that requires little to no human control while something that is "magical" describes something that happens seemingly by magic (or beyond the realm of human comprehension).
