Same video above, but lightened for better viewing.
In the last few days we've seen a lot of discussion and frenzied posting over on the Steorn user forums. If you haven't been keeping up with the story, then basically a device created by two Steorn forum members - overconfident and alsetalokin has created quite a stir. Watch the video and you'll see why.
Incidentally, the name they have chosen for this device has been changed from the OCMPMM to the rather uninspired and creatively retarded WhipMag. Nevertheless, If it does what it seems to then the name will be irrelevant.
Many people are now lining up to try and replicate the device in their own workshops while trying to stick as rigidly to the original design as possible. This being made possible by the opensource aspect of the design and theory with plans freely available
So far about 10 people are constructing serious mock ups in an effort to confirm / deny the effects shown in the video.
Plans, diagrams and CAD drawings can be found here
