Kinetica demo cancelled

After two days of delays and excuses, Steorn has canceled the planned 10 day demo of their Orbo free energy device that was to be held at the Kinetica museum in London. They’ve released the following statement: Further to Steorn’s announcement yesterday (5th July) regarding the technical difficulties experienced during the installation of its “Orbo” […]

Steorn demo delayed – again.

In a public relations catastrophe, Steorn has for the second day in a row failed to produce the working demo of Orbo that they’ve promised to the media and the world. Here’s their latest statement: We are experiencing some technical difficulties with the demo unit in London. Our initial assessment indicates that this is probably […]

Steorn reveals Orbo today

According to the front page of Steorn’s site: View the online demonstration here at 6pm Eastern Time (ET). The Irish Times is carrying an article about the demonstration. Excerpt below: While 22 scientists continue their exhaustive tests on the Orbo technology the inventors are asking the public to come and see a demonstration for themselves […]

What if?

As the long anticipated July demo of their Orbo free energy technology approaches, Steorn’s silence becomes deafening. CEO Sean McCarthy dropped by the company’s online forum only twice over the past month, leaving behind a few short posts conveying nothing of substance but a general sense of confidence (bordering on giddiness) about the impending demo. […]

Orbo at Kinetica museum next week?

Take this with a grain of salt, but the following comment was left here this morning by someone calling himself “MikeDuke”: Expect news of this to break next week in the mainstream press. A working model of the orbo device is going on display in a London Museum. UPDATE: More (possibly) inside information from […]

Steorn vs. the Skeptics

A rational reaction to Steorn’s free energy claim requires skepticism. Not only have centuries of attempts to engineer a perpetual motion machine been fruitless, but the very concept of free energy flies in the face of the most basic laws of nature. In the words of Carl Sagan (after Marcello Truzzi), “extraordinary claims require extraordinary […]

Interviews and speculation

Recent weeks have brought few new developments on the Steorn front, as we continue to await the July demo. Sean took part in two interviews, both of which are available online. The first interview (click for audio – interview begins 11 minutes in) was on the Dublin radio show The Last Word, where Sean revealed […]

Free energy explained

For the most part Steorn has been fairly tight lipped about the principle at work in their perpetual motion machine, Orbo. One would not expect Steorn CEO Sean McCarthy, for example, to waltz into a classroom, start up a powerpoint presentation, explain exactly how Orbo supposedly violates the law of conservation of energy, and then […]

Steorn forum reopens

Steorn’s Sean McCarthy answers some questions

Steorn’s long promised first quarter update, released April 13th, consisted of a five minute video revealing a few new bits of information, but mostly just recapping what we’d already been told. In addition, what had at first been previewed as “detailed technical specifications” turned into two paragraphs of vague jargon – apparently Orbo is based […]
