A man who claims to have developed a free energy technology which could power everything from mobile phones to cars has received more than 400 applications from scientists to test it.Sean McCarthy says that no one was more sceptical than he when Steorn, his small hi-tech firm in Dublin, hit upon a way of generating clean, free and constant energy from the interaction of magnetic fields. ‘It wasn’t so much a Eureka moment as a get-back-in-there-and-check-your-instruments moment, although in far more colourful language,’ said McCarthy. But when he attempted to share his findings, he says, scientists either put the phone down on him or refused to endorse him publicly in case they damaged their academic reputations. So last week he took out a full-page advert in the Economist magazine, challenging the scientific community to examine his technology.
McCarthy claims it provides five times the amount of energy a mobile phone battery generates for the same size, and does not have to be recharged. Within 36 hours of his advert appearing he had been contacted by 420 scientists in Europe, America and Australia, and a further 4,606 people had registered to receive the results. – observer
“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 told Ireland’s RTE radio. “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.” – playfuls
“When asked if he or his company has been impacted by the threat or fear of possible suppression of the technology, as has allegedly been the case in many other similar revolutionary energy technology situations, McCarthy responded: “Not in the slightest.” “We don’t live in the conspiracy-theory world.” He said his company has worked extensively as a vendor for law enforcement, and has confronted some “pretty scary people,” and has good security in place. “Furthermore, it’s not a person, but a company that has produced this technology.” – pesn
If true, this would change the world. But… Steorn is/was a marketing company. It could be a scam: They spend $100,000 for a slick ad and web site and get millions by soliciting research donations from investors before the hoax is found out. I found a European patent which is interesting to read. We’ll see…
