  1. It looks like it will be at the kinetica museum in London and run from
    July 5 - 12. There will be an exhibition for the media on July 4, so
    you may see something about it that evening.

    If you are lucky enough to be in London, don't miss this demo. It is
    like being able to observe the Wright brothers making their test
    flights, only it's a lot more important than that.

    There will be a webcam pointed at the Orbo for the duration of the

    Nothing else yet, but go to or to get the latest.
  2. Steve, even in the US inventors probably want to protect
    themselves against piracy, and so does Steorn. Being clever
    guys, they pull publicity stunts like this demo, and once they
    have their ducks in a row - patents, plenty of publicity,
    then they say: "ok guys, we are open for business. Here is the
    configuration of magnets that makes this work; here is a gadget that
    embodies the principle (they plan to sell 100000 of them). Note that we
    have patented all of the obvious implementations of this new scientific
    principle, so if you want to get your products on the shelves of Walmart
    before anyone else, you will need to licence from us, because it is going
    to take GE and Mitsubishi and Sony six months or more before they have
    figured out an implementation we haven't patented."

    That may not be the way science works, but it is the way businessmen work.
  3. I'm not sure how they do things in London, but here in the U.S. when
    you have something like that (and it works) you don't show it at a
    fair, you build a shitload of them and sell them and get rich.

    When their website lists specs and a "Buy Now" button, then you know
    it's something besides vapor.
  4. One of the reasons I love Usenet. In 51 years I had not paid much
    attention to this. None of the articles I could find indicated that he
    sold a shitload of them, though...
    Same here....didn't sell but a few that I could find. And all that was
    before Powerpoint presentations, where even a magic wand works.

    There's a guy on the street in NYC that does a mean shell game. Only costs
    to play, not to watch. Either way, you don't get anything out of it.

    , because it is going
    If GE or Mitsubishi wants to bust any or all patents that Steorn
    holds, it's petty cash to them. Steorn would be crushed like a bug by
    legal costs. We'd see the finished product in a month or two in a cool
    molded plastic case like their shitty alarm clocks.

    GE or some other big company would have already at least attempted to
    buy the technology (term used loosely) by now.
  9. Well, since the energy is free, it should be able to power a cooling
    system for the device,no?
