Steorn Showing Livestream of Orbo Discharge/Recharge Test

There’s a live test being streamed by Steorn of an Orbo test system being tested.

Watch live video from orboteam on

UPDATE: The live stream is now showing here:

Here’s an explanation from the Orbo Facebook page:

This video stream shows an Orbo power cell in long term reliability testing.

The test system comprises of an Orbo power cell that is being shorted through a relay at an approximate frequency of 50Hz (50 times a second). The trace on the scope is the Orbo power cell voltage.

The cell is being shorted and is recharging approximately 4.3 million times per day. Prior to the live stream of this power cell commencing on 12th May 2016 the cell shown had been shorted and recharged in excess of 350 million times.

On the stream there’s also this comment:

“We have added a small test motor to the live stream, this is a prototype and has only been in lab test for a week or so. Hence there may be a few teething problems, all of which you will get to see live on this channel!”

I’m assuming that this testing is being done prior to any more Orbo products being shipped. I’m not sure how long it will take before they are satisfied that the products are ready. I’ll try and find out more information.

    So McCarthy claimed he would develop and sell a mysterious, marvellous, free energy device.
    There were always three possible motives behind this.
    1. It is true. McCarthy has indeed stumbled onto a miracle that runs counter to scientific laws.
    2. It is false. McCarthy isdeluded or crazy.
    3. It is false. McCarthy knows exactly what he is doing and is a conman.
    Each had its camp of supporters depending on your interpretation of events.

    At the start, even though history tells us that many have previously claimed but then failed to produce such a device, I was open minded, heck why not!
    But after the fiasco in London in 2007 I became more sceptical.
    Then we had the independent scientific jury, which again was a bust.
    So now after more grand promises end in failure in 2016 surely we are at the end now.

    So what can we conclude based on the actions and results?
    McCarthy can tell a good story (what the Irish call blarney).
    As far as science is concerned, no genuine evidence has been demonstrated of a free energy process.
    As far as product is concerned. No working product has been produced.
    The only thing that has demonstrably happened is that a lot of money has been taken from investors with nothing given in return.

    So why are so many taking the view that Steorn was a failure?
    Sure if the motive was to sell a fee energy device then it was a failure.
    But if the motive was to fleece gullible investors then the whole venture has been a great success.

    As long as Frank isn’t violating any terms with Steorn, I would agree. Tear it down. I think that tests should begin by replicating what is currently shown on the Cell Test Stream site, and then performing tests that would give insight as to the nature of the effect. Is it acting more like a super capacitor or a battery? Is it acting like a topological insulator? Other suggestions?

    An absolutely brutally honest article, yet at the end the writer surprisingly states, “At this point, I’m not closed to the possibility that they have something that works, or produces some unusual effect.” I, along with other former members of the SKDB, wonder where go from here? Despite Steorn spin-off HephaHeat apparently developing tech that not only works but is aligned with Sony (with celebrity endorsements!), the Steorn mothership is looking shaky. They need an infusion of third party validation, something that the SKDB could not give them due to Steorn holding back critical information. I say, give us kits, remove the black goop and let the members of ECW see what they can discover about the veracity of Steorn’s claims.

    They are testing. Nobody really knows exactly what, but they are testing. And the motor is spinning. Nobody really knows why, but it is spinning.

    They have found a practical use: getting money from investors.
