Steorn, home of our Irish friends with their perpetual motion machine, has redesigned its web site. It's given the free energy technology a name, too - Orbo.
And has Steorn told us how it works yet, who their panel of scientists are, or how things are going? Well, guess.
However, things are moving (albeit probably in circles).
"Our free energy technology will be made widely available to the development community immediately after the independent scientific validation process.
Under the terms of a modified general public licence and for a nominal fee, Steorn's intellectual property will be made available concurrently to all interested parties, from individual enthusiasts to larger research organisations. Steorn is taking this bold move to accelerate the deployment and acceptance of its technology for both humanitarian and commercial products.
Further details will be made available during the first half of 2007."
I don't know what a 'general public licence' is, nor what sort of intellectual propert Steorn's talking about (It can't be copyright and it can't be patents, which leaves... trademarks? Eh?), nor what the role of the 'nominal fee' is - why not just ask someone who knows?
It still looks like a load of Dubs having a laugh. At least there's not long to wait until they put up or shut up - and the day I have one of their machines sitting on my desk generating more energy than it consumes, I shall make a hat out of marzipan and eat it.
