If you haven't been paying attention, some "scientists" in Ireland under the name "STEORN" have been making waves over the last year or so - promising a completely "Free" energy source. It's explanation defied the laws of physics - it's potential to be the greatest invention of all time was an understatement.
Yesterday, Steorn was to give their first public demonstration of the device. The "Device" is apparently controlled with an "Apple iMac".
Well, as one might expect ... the device failed to function and the exhibition was cancelled.
I have to say I have never seen ANY major scientific exhibition run or controlled with an Apple computer. I know it's done. I know most of the human genome was deciphered on Apple computers. I also know that MIT's Artificial Intelligence project known as KIZMIT is run with Apple computers - but it made it even less plausible for Steorn to show an Apple computer running their "device". Mac users know ... that kind of thing only happens in the movies ;-)
Here is a close up of the device. It is a piece of plastic cut into a "Stargate" like pattern.
I almost think this isn't a hoax, but IS most likely a wheel that spins constantly based on magnetics. Problem is ... this is not reproducible in small form like they promise AND because magnetic fields are easily altered by the smallest of external forces - they could NEVER EVER get it small enough to go in a small device like a cell phone NOR able to produce enough energy for a car as they claim.
