A while back, a company called Steorn claimed to have invented a free energy device. If their claims were true, it would’ve changed the world. Sadly, they’re not. At least it’s distinctly looking like it’s all been a bit of a sham / balls-up.
Nearly two months ago, they planned on demonstrating this amazing technology to the world, only it didn’t work. Why? Because the demonstration room lights were too hot. Doh!
Since then, someone’s taken the trouble to make an exploded view of Orbo based on photos that’ve been taken of the device so far:
There’s already quite a good write up and set of comments about the drawing above – here, if you’re interested. There’s also a poor quality, very dark video of a spinning Orbo – which makes everything seem decidedly amateur.
Steorn are apparently planning another demo at some point in the future, so what are the chances of there being more to their magnetic motor than meets the eye? Will they have the last laugh? I doubt it. Shame. :-(
