Bad Case of Deja Vu: Steorn Resurrected from its Grave Where it Should be by Now

Oh, dear. They have come back from the dead. Well, not really. They're still as stinky as zombies for fooling the world that the laws of physics could be violated. So, what are they up to now? Selling snake oil and rotating magnetic thinga-ma-jigs that would light the LED inside your PC.

Well, I have been banned from their forums specifically for calling their founders d*ckheads. Well d*ckheads they are, for using deception, hype and overall marketing savvy for deceiving all of us while we collectively wait at the edge of our seats gasping in awe at -- nothing but hot, stinky air.

I got this when I woke up, for all of us to collectively laugh - at ourselves for believing these people in the first place.

After six years of research and development, Steorn launches the first of the four technology streams associated with the development of Orbo technology.


SteornLab is a range of laboratory and test equipment targeted at organisations developing rotary and magnetic systems. The first two SteornLab products are available to purchase from today.


A second technology range, ZeroF passive magnetic bearings, is scheduled for commercial launch during summer 2009.


The Steorn commercialisation and e-learning platform, SKDB, will launch alongside the much-anticipated Orbo technology towards the end of 2009.


The final testing of the SKDB commences with a call for 300 engineering organisations / qualified engineers to sign up. There will be no subscription charge for those involved in this final testing phase, just a requirement to enter into our standard developer licence agreement.


"2009 represents a turning point for Steorn, Orbo and our other technology ranges," said CEO Sean McCarthy. "It marks the end of a long cycle of R&D and sees us making a strong push towards commercialisation - our plans show the business reaching profitability in the next 12 to 18 months."
