With technology that would bend the laws of physics, Irish company Steorn claimed, back in 2007, that its Orbo machine could generate energy from nothing but a verdict from the international science community, delivered this week, refutes this claim.
McCarthy, on the Steorn website, said that "he was grateful to the jury members for the time and effort they had devoted to the process", but that problems with Orbo had been ironed out during the course of the year and the company "is now focused on commercial launch towards the end of this year, at which time academic and engineering validation would be released concurrent with public demonstrations."
"Steorn launches SteornLab and sets out plans for 2009 launch of Orbo, Steorn launches the first of the four technology streams associated with the development of Orbo "
McCarthy continued on to state that he “fully understood the frustration of the Jury members with respect to the time that the process was taking. Implementing Orbo in a reliable and consistent manner had remained a challenge for the organization, one that we had made no secret of. Due to these difficulties we had focused on providing the Jury with test data relating to the underlying magnetic effect behind Orbo. This work concluded at the end of 2008.”
