Full a Steorn

Steorn Has Missed another Deadline

Last August Steorn caused a stir by placing a huge advert in the Economist claiming to have invented a "free energy" machine that would power everything from mobile phones to whole cities.

Steorn has had a "jury" of 22 scientists testing it's machine for over 3 months. It missed it's own set deadline today for giving some announcement on viability by placing a completely inept and useless pseudo-statement on it's web site. It had already outlined the magneto-mechanical nature of it's "motor"and stated it's .5 watt per cubic cm size to power ratio.

Guys - Either the darn thing works or it doesn't, and 22 boffins playing with a toy for 3 months should be able to say if it is viable or not. If it works say so - if it doesn't fess up now.

Here is the promised Steorn announcement awaited for over 3 months:

Technical Specifications

Orbo is based upon the principle of time variant magneto-mechanical interactions. The core output from our Orbo technology is mechanical. This mechanical energy can be converted into electrical energy using standard generator technology either by integrating such technology directly with Orbo or by connecting the mechanical output from Orbo to the generation technology. The efficiency of such mechanical/electrical conversions is highly dependent on the components used and is also a function of size.

Orbo technology is subject to continuous development. This development is focused on improving the manufacturability of the technology, production costs and power density. Orbo was initially developed as using stop-start mechanisms (with a power density of 0.5 Watts per cm3), Steorn is currently finalizing the development of constant motion systems and a significant improvement in power density is anticipated.
