eldavojohn writes "What was rejected by many of us as snakeoil (see tags), is being demonstrated today at 6PM at the Kinetica museum (1pm Eastern Time) for a ten day demonstration to the public. Known as the new technology "Orbo" by Irish company Steorn, it generated a lot of controversy as they claim this machine uses magnets to violate the laws of physics that we have witnessed for nearly three centuries. If this is a PR stunt, they're sure taking it all the way. From the article, "CEO Sean McCarthy tells SilconRepublic how it works. Namely, the time variance in magnetic fields allows the Orbo platform to "consistently produce power, going against the law of conservation of energy which states that energy cannot be created or destroyed." He goes on to say "It's too good to be true but it is true. It will have such an impact on everything we do. The only analogy I can give is if you had absolute proof that God wasn't real.""
