Irish firm’s display of ‘free-energy’ machine delayed.

Technology developed by an Irish company that allegedly defies the laws of physics to produce free power is to go on public display for the first time.
Dublin-based Steorn claims to have developed free energy technology called Orbo which could power everything from vehicles to mobile phones.
Steorn planned to show Orbo at an exhibition today at the Kinetica Museum in London. However this has been delayed due to “technical difficulties”. A statement on their website blames “intense heat from the camera lighting”.
It is claimed the Orbo will perpetually spin in a clear polycarbonate wheel with absolutely no supply of external energy or power unit attached.
In August of last year the firm challenged the world’s scientific community to give its verdict on technology in full page ad in the Economist. They claim the device smashes the laws of physics by creating ” free energy.”
Steorn’s chief executive, Sean McCarthy, insisted that scientists have looked at the invention and said that it works.
“What we have developed is a way to construct magnetic fields so that when you travel round the magnetic fields, starting and stopping at the same position, you have gained energy ,” he said.
“The energy isn’t being converted from any other source such as the energy within the magnet. It’s literally created. Once the technology operates, it provides a constant stream of clean energy.”
What are they waiting for?
