A few months ago Irish company Steorn gave their final demonstration of Orbo, the whirling magnetic device that they claim creates more energy than it uses but which demonstrated nothing to anyone.
Now Steorn are back. And this time they have another version of the device that doesn’t do what it says: and it’s solid state.
I have no idea how a supposed whirling magnetic energy-maker can be made without any moving parts. Although I guess it’s no more ludicrous than the whole creating-free-energy idea.
For a good laugh, read the Steorn public forum.
Irish company Steorn held what they say will be their final demo of their Orbotechnology today, a machine that they claim breaks physics and produces more energy than it uses (over unity).
Twitter implies it was far from a convincing demo. Ooh, shocker!
Overnight someone posted a comment on one of my previous posts about Steorn, an Irish company who claim they have a device that can create more energy than it uses, and how they’ve recently released their technology that does this, called Orbo.
Let’s forget that they tried to demonstrate it a few years ago in London, and failed. Or that they attracted a group of independent scientists who said there’s no evidence of what Steorn says.
Now they’ve released Orbo. But “released” means a video on their website, plus some streams of a whirling plastic device. What does that prove? Nothing.
But wait! This device isn’t the same as the one they trumpeted before. Initially they said that Orbo worked with permanent magnets. Now they’re using electromagnets (i.e., magnets powered by electricity) with a battery in the circuit. They claim the device is powering the battery. Who can say?
But wait again! They’re also launching the Steorn Knowledge Development Base (SKDB)! Jut pay 419 Euros and you’re in! Then maybe you’ll see the light.
There’s nothing here that demonstrates Steorn and Orbo and their over-unity claims are anything more than a load of bollocks.
I’ve blogged about Irish company Steorn – who claim their Orbo device breaks physics and produces more energy than it uses – before.
I’m told they’ve finally released Orbo. I’m on my way to work now, but will look for info later with keen interest and blog something about what’s up.
If their claims are true, perhaps being “released” means Orbo has grown, assimilated a consciousness, and is already doing its own press conferences.
Long-time readers will know I’ve followed the story of Steorn, the Irish company that claimed they’d made a permanent-magnetic device that produced more energy than it consumed (which is impossible).
A couple of years ago Steorn selected a jury of scientists and engineers to evaluate their free-energy technology (all demonstration attempts since then have failed).
That jury reported yesterday. Surprise, surprise: it doesn’t work.
Of course, Steorn has said that it’s resolved many of the issues that the jury observed. Right.
Remember Steorn? That wacky Irish dot-com company who claimed they had a magnetic device that broke the first law of thermodynamics and produced more energy than it used? Who have refused to allow scientists to examine their device (which they call “Orbo”)? Who tried to demonstrate Orbo in London last year, only to see that demo fail because of – their claim – heat from the lights? Or not?
I’ve been checking Google periodically for any news about Steorn, but have seen nothing since summer 2007’s demo comedy act. The absence of any public info means that the forum on Steorn’s web site has degeneratedinto the typical internet staples of politics and religion.
I missed this August article in Ireland’s Sunday Tribune, however. In it, Steorn claim they’re still working on their validation process and will probably unveil Orbo before next summer.
Ooh. The anticipation.
