It is fair to say that the demonstration of Steorn’s Orbo technology recently at Kinetica in London did not go as planned. Giving the world “free energy” was never going to be that easy, was it?
Despite feeling disappointed about Orbo’s introduction to the world being so problematic it’s worth noting that this does entirely have the feel of just a small company, (20 EMPLOYEES) in a hurry and ill prepared for potential technical issues arising on-site.
I remember a famous Microsoft presentation by Bill Gates where things went horribly wrong live with his Windows Operating System, much to the amusement of the press pack. Things do go wrong, even with billionaire demos.
It’s also worth remembering that the 22 strong jury testing is now in it’s 6th month of testing. Now I don’t know about you, but I do know one thing. 22 physicists don’t hang around for 6 days let alone 6 months If something doesn’t work. They’d have been out of there pretty damned quick If Steorn wasn’t engaging them with something of substance – agreed?
Besides, If people think that Steorn have some ulterior motive by spending money like it’s going out of fashion only to result in a failed demo then I can’t quite see the logic in that either.
In short. A botched demo. Nothing more. Nothing less. Free energy is still very much on the cards. We await the next development in the saga.
