ORBO From Fantasy To Reality - Even ZDnet Agree

Wednesday, December 16, 2009


 ORBO - Up close and personal.


Check out this link and then read below.

The most interesting aspect of this apart from the photographs, is the section of ZDNet in which it is now included. Used to be not so long ago Orbo was in the "fairy dust" or "recovered alien disc" section.

No more.

Now Orbo is newly promoted to ZDnet's Emerging Technology Section.  That's right folks, emerging technology.  A new technology about to emerge on the scene.  Not a fantasy, or a fraud, or prolonged self deception, but EMERGING TECH.

Care to provide a link? Can't find any such reference on zdnet and steorn doesn't come up in their search.

Ahh, zdnet.co.uk carries it, not zdnet.com. Same site, regionalized.

The bit in the text that says "this link" is the clicakble link funnily enough.

"The bit in the text that says "this link" is the clicakble link funnily enough."

Perhaps if you put quotes around it as you did in your example, Eric and other folks could find it. In your blog post it appears no differently than the rest of the text. I noticed that in your last few posts, the links aren't visible.

Oh by the way, didn't you notice that Steorn's Orbo runs on a battery? Orbo is an electric motor, what a breakthrough!

I hope they are only baiting and will show something more.

@zpe

I'll put it in big Mr Noddy font next time so that it can be found by the hard of thinking.

No electric motor I know of has a 3:1 ratio of power, so yes it is quite a breakthrough indeed.

Didn't you read the press release? They will be conducting live replication and validation sessions.

Well if you take a step back and observe it for what it looks like : a motor on a battery with a bunch of unproven claims around it. Label me a nay sayer but i think you're planning your 'see i was right all along' party a wee bit early, sure i'm happy to see that they got out of secrecy and plan to offer people an opertunity to replicate the results them selves but until an independend third party validates/replicates the results i'd remain (as you should have remained) a skeptic.

I call their bluff. An electric motor with a "3:1 ratio of power" does not need any battery whatsoever.

I'll admit I'm impressed by the demo. I am still, for form's sake, sceptical, because it still has to be peer-reviewed in a scientific journal. Only a matter of time now, I guess. That battery needs to be checked out. Why don't they have a voltmeter permanently wired to it? Or two multimeters, one on the power supply wire and one on the power output wire? Surely there must be a readable difference in the two wires. That would silence the "It's battery-powered!" camp, no?

Here is the link to the full zdnet-article:

"it still has to be peer-reviewed in a scientific journal"

If you think there is ANY scientific journal on the planet that will review and publish anything about a technology like Orbo, you are very delusional. These journals won't even consider touching OU tech.

The only way that Steorn will succeed with their Orbo tech is by reaching a critical mass of people who are replicating their technology so eventually even the skeptics cave in.

If the energy ratio had been something like 50:1 and they actually tried to do something useful with it, AND they also metered the energy for everyone to see, that would certainly help. Having their units break every 8 hours or so (I understand it is just their switches) also doesn't help.

@Jonathan
Fair enough, a physics journal probably won't touch it. Still, the physics journals are my personal yardstick. If OU is real, eventually even Stephen Hawking will have to sit up and take notice. (Figuratively speaking.) When that happens, I'll believe it.

I fully accept that Steorn could have made a discovery that cannot be explained by our current scientific knowledge. However, I refuse to accept it until our current scientific knowledge has had a good, hard look at it.
