Orbo: Steorn Raises the Curtains

The company that stirred the scientific community in 2003 with their claim of a magnet motor technology, today posted two videos, announcing that they are soliciting teams of engineers and commercial interests to become part of a developer group of 300 to prepare the technology for market rollout.

After displaying a curtain with today's date this morning, Steorn later opened their site, displaying a couple of new videos on their home page, a suite of magnetic measurement tools, and a header link "SKDB", where there are several pages elaborating a solicitation to teams of engineers and commercial interests to become part of a core of developers who will take a working principle and build embodiments which can then be implemented through license.

"SKDB" stands for Steorn Knowledge Development Base.  Basically it will be an intranet for 300 qualified engineers selected to be on the inside in learning, defining, refining, and developing the core working concept. (Ref.)

One video is labeled: "Orbo 2009 launch", and includes interviews with several credentialed scientists who attest to having seen and measured the Orbo prototype to their satisfaction, confirming that there is "more energy going out than was put in".

The other is labeled: "Sign up for the SKDB 300" and invites qualified interested parties to become part of the development team. In a first stage, 300 technology developers and interested industries are selected to develop practical applications of the Orbo technology. Later, information will be made available to science, innovators, early adopters, special interest groups and the interested public.

The intro video concludes with, CEO, Sean McCarthy saying: "Our objective is to get this into the hand of developers this year, and to create an environment where those developers can rapidly accelerate that into a real world product."

The site states:

"As a ground breaking technology, Orbo provides a new approach to powering existing products, and a platform for developers to bring new innovative products to market.

"Orbo technology provides engineers and application developers constant power, zero emissions and a fuel-less mechanism for the generation of energy / motive power at the point of use.

"Orbo technology is of application to a wide range of industries, allowing new flexibility in system design by removing many traditional technology constraints." (Ref.)

Auxiliary Products

Along with Orbo, Steorn has developed some auxiliary products to supplement the research and development and testing process.

According to their Feb. 4 press release: "SteornLab is a range of laboratory and test equipment targeted at organizations developing rotary and magnetic systems. The first two SteornLab products are available to purchase from today."

"A second technology range, ZeroF passive magnetic bearings, is scheduled for commercial launch during summer 2009."

Steorn's Orbo History Recap

Prior to their foray into magnet motors, for many years Steorn developed technology to help combat counterfeiting and fraud in the plastic card and optical disc industries. 

In 2003 Steorn undertook a project to develop more efficient micro generators. Early into this project the company developed certain generator configurations that appeared to be over 100% efficient. Further investigation and development has led to the company's present patent-pending, all-magnet motor technology which allegedly produces free energy.

On July 4, 2007, Steorn ran a widely publicized demo of their free energy prototype at the Kinetica Museum in London, promised to be streamed live around the world; but it opened with the device not working, spurring intense "I told you so" skepticism. (Ref.) 

Today's curtain-raising is essentially their first announcement since that botched demo; and this time they don't show anything running, they just show reputable scientists attesting that they have seen and measured the Orbo technology to their satisfaction.

McCarthy said: 

"After six years of research and development, Steorn launches the first of the four technology streams associated with the development of Orbo technology.  2009 represents a turning point for Steorn, Orbo and our other technology ranges.  It marks the end of a long cycle of R&D and sees us making a strong push towards commercialisation - our plans show the business reaching profitability in the next 12 to 18 months."

McCarthy was recently featured on television, talking about the economy and his technology in particular.  This was a strong indication that they had not crawled under a rock.

Openings for the SKDB

It's one thing to have a working concept.  It's quite another to then build it into practical embodiments.  Steorn's global-team approach is to be commended, and is certainly an interesting road to take, sort of a hybrid between open sourcing and the traditional IP-protecting/exclusive approach.

Those who will become part of the SKDB 300 will have access to instructional materials about the operation of the technology, as well as the ability to participate in focused development forums on the various aspects of the technology, from theory, to research and development, to device development, to marketing strategies.  Some will have commercial licensing interest, but not all.

This isn't going to happen right away, apparently. According to their press release, "The Steorn commercialization and e-learning platform, SKDB, will launch alongside the much-anticipated Orbo technology towards the end of 2009.

"The final testing of the SKDB commences with a call for 300 engineering organizations / qualified engineers to sign up. There will be no subscription charge for those involved in this final testing phase, just a requirement to enter into our standard developer license agreement."

I applied to have our New Energy Congress be involved in this process, with potential commercial license interest as well.

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
