Steorn and Orbo Re-Birth??
Back from the grave Steorn and Orbo? They are re-launching with working models at their Dublin base.
When Steorn launched originally, about four years ago, I got all excited like a child on Christmas eve. Their publicity at the time suggested they had a working device ready to be developed and mass produced. They quoted power output figures per cubic centimetre etc. like it was all tested - measured, and ready to go. - - - - Then it all died ignominiously in London.
Now, just over a week to Christmas, when we least expected it - they have a re-launch. This time - they assure us - it will work. What they seem to have however, judging from the videos, is little more than a toy - certainly nothing that would power your household needs.

Even Got Plans on line
Steorn have even published a pdf download link with an exploded drawing of the Orbo device, looks like DIY experimenters could perhaps even replicate it.
When Steorn launched originally, about six years ago not, I got all excited. Their publicity suggested they had a working device ready to be developed and mass produced. they quoted power output figures per cubic centimetre etc. Then it all died ignominiously in London.
I wish Orbo well and hope that it leads to something. However, I have really major reservations. If the thing works, like they seems to be saying on the video, why has it not already sold millions and be running just about every electrical gadget on the planet?? Why indeed!!
Much as I hope for some energy breakthrough and would truly like to believe, why am I not confident of a future for this device??
