Steorn invent a 'free energy' machine

    things like this are common, take black holes for example, no-one's seen one, yet they are mathematically proven to exist. maths are the basis for everything (the universal language) and are "solid".
    The unfortunate thing is that there is significant mathematical backing to say something like this isn't possible.

    Since I can take the laws of physics and translate them into the future without them changing, this means nature has temporal symmetry.

    Due to Noether's Theorem, every symmetry has a corresponding conservation law and the conservation law corresponding to this temporal symmetry is energy conservation.

    So, conservation of energy is basically the same statement as "The laws of physics do not vary over time".

    Also General Relativity requires that energy is conserved and it works very well, so I don't think Steorn's claim has any merit.
    its more commonly known as the N-MACHINE and was discovered by faraday at the same time as he was developing the dynamo,
    Curious, since Faraday's experiments lead to the discovery that a magnetic field does no work.

    Also the language of the head guy is a bit dubious, i.e.
    "A certain geometrical arrangement of magnets."

    Geometrical is just inserted to make the sentence sound more technical.

    Has this been confirmed as crap yet?

    I really though these guys had gone away, apparently not - they got €23m from absolute morons investors, and despite the fact that the original orbo was all about moving things in an electromagnetic field, they've just "invented" a solid state USB phone battery charger that keeps charging batteries and never needs charging itself!

    They want €1200 for one of these, oh and their rigorous scientific "field tests" involved putting it behind a bar in Dublin - you'll be glad to know the barman said it works great.

    Steorn officially went into liquidation a few weeks ago. Almost €23 MILLION of investments wasted, which is a disgrace when you consider the genuine scientists and entrepreneurs who need funding for legitimate R&D.

    Items up for liquidation. Viewing tomorrow (Monday 22nd May 2017) by appointment only in Tallaght from 10am until 4pm:

    Bids with 20% deposit by Tuesday.

    There is not much left really, no signs of any actual 'batteries'

    Photos of some stuff here:

    I would bid for a plastic case if I was around just for fun.
