Free, Clean and Limitless Energy for Everyone?

steornWhat would happen to our world if the energy we consume everyday was clean, limitless - and best of all - free? Up to now, these scientific blasphemies have only been thought possible by 'mad scientists' because the theory behind the concept of "free energy" goes against all fundamental laws of physics. But , lo and behold, things are about to change.

It appears that 2 Irish engineers have discovered, completely by accident, a technique that allows a machine to produce more, surplus, energy than it needs to operate.

In Steorn's theory, fixed magnets could act upon a moving magnet in such a way as to make it a virtual perpetual motion generator. In an electrical appliance - a computer, kettle, mobile phone or toy - that would provide all the power for its lifetime. Of course, free-energy cars, power plants and water-pumping systems could follow. A better world indeed.

Just try to imagine what this invention could bring to our society. Think about how it would be to live in a world where people wouldn't have to be dependent on environment harming fossil fuels and depleting natural resources , and of the impact this could have on the development of third world countries. For most of us, it would be a dream come true.

  • Most blasphemies stay as blasphemies.

    This one will be no different.

  • Yeah, this would be great! So would eternal youth and faster than light travel. All of these things stand an equal chance of becoming reality, however.

  • That's right, Brad! I mean come on... Everybody knows that if men were meant to fly, God would've given us wings. Next they'll be trying to convince us the sun doesn't actually orbit the Earth. Where do they get these crazy ideas?

  • I remember coming across this a while ago. I was skeptical then, and I am skeptical now.

    It honestly seems to be more of a PR stunt than anything. Everything that I've read on this technology is cryptic at best, and poorly-written at worst.

    Their claims have not been substantiated, nor opened for peer review in the scientific community. Such exceptional claims need exceptional proof, and can only be substantiated after exceptional discourse. This cannot happen behind closed doors. If they're keeping things closed in order to protect the "patent deal of a lifetime" then shame on them.
