Free Energy?

Sean McCarthy of Steorn with "the" Gizmo?

An End to All of the World's Energy Problems or just Another Scam?

In case you haven't noticed in the last week, a small Dublin technology firm called Steorn has made what amounts to just about the most fantastic scientific claim ever!!!

Steorn announced, a week ago, in a very expensive advert in the Ecomomist, that it had found a way to make endless free energy using magnetism. This new technology can be made to work in things as small as mobile phones, or to power cars. It doesn't clarify if it would be possible to have it run generating stations?

If this is true and not a hoax it will change the course of human history. It would end the energy crisis, stop global warming, end the middle-east oil strangle hold, change the world ecomomy. It would make this blog redundant!!

Steorn have a web site at:

There is already a new internet group formed to watch and follow the developments called "SteornWatch" the website is at:

I think Steorn's claim is most probably like the many other "free energy" discoveries made over the years, all of which came to nothing. But something deep inside me hopes and wants to believe that it is for real.

We will wait and see.

It would indeed be great but everything I've read about it suggests that it breaks the first law of thermodynamics which - if I've understood what those who seem to know what they're talking about - essentially says that you can convert energy from one form to another but can never get out more than you put in. The consensus seems to be that it's a bit of a stunt.
