Steorn Overunity Demonstration Completed

Today's demonstration summarized the findings of 1) no back EMF, 2) no component degradation (e.g. Gauss diminishing) to produce the effect, and 3) inductance gain (energy being harvested from somewhere).  With this final demonstration, the technology is now being released to developers to prepare the technology for market.

Steorn CEO, Sean McCarthy during the Jan. 30, 2010 demonstration.


Steorn did their "overunity demo" of their e-Orbo technology today at the Waterways Centre in Dublin, Ireland where they have had several copies of their electromagnetic devices on display since Dec. 15, minus a break through Christmas and New Years.

Steorn CEO, Sean McCarthy summarized the tests that have been done until now and then gave a final piece of evidence, live.

If their technology is what they say it is, it could provide a new, clean energy source that is affordable and available 24/7/365 and scalable to whatever size is needed, large or small, pulling inexhaustible energy from the environment.

One of the attributes he reviewed was the absence of back electromagnetic flux (BEMF) in the coils. This he illustrated by a videotaped presentation comparing their e-Orbo with a pulse motor of a more conventional arrangement, then showing the oscilloscope readings that show the absence of BEMF in the e-Orbo while BEMF exists as would be expected in the conventional pulse motor.

McCarthy also reviewed a test that had just been completed, which had spanned the past week (live on streaming camera three), in which the gauss (magnetic field strength) of all the magnets were measured before, then measured again at the end of a week to show that there had been no degradation in the magnets. This was to show that the energy manifesting in the system was not a function of components of the device giving up their energy and being degraded in the process.

Then, McCarthy showed a scope shot comparing the electrical input energy to the electrical output energy, showing a net gain in inductance or gain in energy (harvested from the environment somehow, in the tradition of Nikola Tesla). One curve represented the gain in output energy after each pulse, rising from left to right; and the other curve represented the sum of input energy during the same period. That curve was shown to be well below the output curve, hence yielding the conclusion of "overunity".

If I understand correctly, the oscilloscope shot being shown live was of the motor as it was presently running, giving such a result live.

McCarthy said that the data they had recently collected showed 327% more electrical energy being produced compared to the electrical energy being input. That number does not take into consideration other factors such as bearing and air friction as well as heat. He said this data would be posted on their website for review.

Apparently Steorn did not get around to doing a calorimetric test they had planned, to quantify the heat generation component of the system to include that number in the input:output calculation.

McCarthy announced that they had extended their stay at the Waterways building and would be allowing people to make appointments to come in and measure these systems for themselves through February 26.

Meanwhile, beginning in the first of February, Steorn will open the SKDB (Steorn Knowledge DataBase) initiative for educating licensing parties in the process for the beginning of their development process. The first week will be exclusive to those who have already been involved in the SKDB process and are licensing its development.

The presentation lasted about half an hour, with over 900 people watching live by the end of their webcast, and probably at least a hundred present at the Waterways building. McCarthy said that there have been around 2500 visitors so far at the Waterways building since they launched the demo on December 15th.

The purpose of these demonstrations has been to interest development groups to get involved, under license, to develop the technology to its myriad of applications. McCarthy said Steorn has made the development license fees low to encourage more development, with the hopes that the more people who get involved in developing, the faster the technology will arrive in the marketplace in practical embodiments. The cost of a developing license is 419 Euros.

McCarthy said that there have also been third party validations of their technology, some of which they will be allowed to post on their site. He said that some of those who do independent tests don't wish for their names to be made known publicly; which they honor.

Though McCarthy hasn't mentioned it, the reason I use the "e-Orbo" designation is because the company allegedly also has an all-magnetic version of the electromagnetic phenomenon, which I would guess will be called "m-Orbo." It was in an interview with me right after they first announced their discovery in the Economist in Aug. 2006 that McCarthy said that their effect was an all-magnet motor. (Ref.) Apparently somewhere along the way in the process of exploring the various aspects of the phenomenon, they came up with an electromagnetic version; and after much debate, they decided that the electromagnetic version would be the one they would put forward at this time.

Here's the YouTube videos published on Feb. 1 by SteornOfficial featuring McCarthy's historic Jan. 30 "Proving Over-Unity" live presentation at the Waterways Centre in Dublin, Ireland. The presentation is professionally edited and rendered, with several camera angles. It's sure to become a classic, as the technology now goes into the hands of developers.

The Steorn demo was underwhelming. They have the equipment to really prove their point and then they just don't bother to follow all the way thru and make it thoroughly convincing. 
I am hoping they will finally, really let people go measure the device. They promised people could go do that over two weeks ago. They have many broken promises..
Promises from the past
1) Come measure it yourself next Monday (said two weeks ago)
2) Calorimetry data
3) Device shown doing work (light lights, etc.)
4) Data on the magnet properties over time

It will be nice to see a battery actually being charged up.

Sometimes its what we don't see that is most interesting. If I was Sean, I'd probably not publicly try to power lights with my working Orbo. As he communicated, he is not interested in selling his machine. He is interested in licensing his idea so others can design & sell their machines. Showing glowing lights running on their own would be too interesting to the public and he would be inundated with lots of worthless "attention". Its best to keep it "technical" and "boring" and let the engineers out there do their work.

Also, when someone builds and fine-tunes an orbo-type machine, they will likely keep it a secret until they can market it. Any wise designer/manufacturer would keep r&d as secret as possible so as not to feed the competition. It is likely that this effect has reduced the number of visible replications.

If orbo is legit (and I am becoming increasingly convinced) there are already multiple effective replications out there. We just can't see them, yet.
