Steorn Orbo a Non-Working Exhibit
Steorn are a science development and management company but it would seem they overlooked one of the "Other Laws of the Universe"
I refer of course to "Murphy's Law". Steorn goes all the way to London to set up a demo and they don't have a spare!!!! The thing breaks down, so they say, and they are being viewed by the masses on the Internet with their pants down, so to speak. You would have to pity them. But if they had been true to Murphy's law they would have saved themselves much embarrassment.
Here is the Statement on Kinetica's Site
KINETICA OPENING DELAYED: Due to some technical difficulties caused by the intense heat from camera lighting, Steorn's demonstration of its 'Orbo' free energy technology has been slightly delayed. As a consequence, Kinetica Museum will not be open to the public today (5th July). A technical assessment is currently underway and information will be posted on the websites of Steorn and Kinetica as soon as it becomes available. We apologise for this delay and appreciate your patience.
Steorn's 'Orbo' technology is based on the interaction of magnetic fields and allows the production of clean, free and constant energy. 'Orbo' technology is fully scalable and can be applied to virtually all devices requiring energy, from cellular phones to cars.
A Word to Steorn
In addition to the vastly wise "Murphy's Law" here are a few other laws of the universe that Steorn might find helpful when considering future showings of their perpetual motion machine.
The “Other” Laws of the Universe
Law of Probability The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
Variation Law If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will start to move faster than the one you are in now (works every time).
Law of the Result When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will. And visaversa.
Law of Biomechanics The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
Law of Rugs/Carpets The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor covering are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet/rug.
Law of Location No matter where you go, there you are.
Law of Logical Argument Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about.
Brown's Law If the shoe fits, it's ugly looking.
Oliver's Law A closed mouth gathers no feet.
All that said I sincerely hope that Steorn has something real to offer science and the world.
