We've gone from pretty much nothing in early 2011 to an independent report in mid-2013 and several competing companies (some of which by the way have already reported and successfully demoed their stuff):
Defkalion claim to be selling technology licenses. After their deal to produce stuff for Rossi fell through. Either they've totally ripped off his stuff, in which case why is there not a huge lawsuit (I mean, no one else is smart enough to come up with this stuff right, it's revolutionary!) , or it's a scam.
The Brillouin Energy stuff seems to be based on misunderstanding of another obscure part of physics.
Anyone that actually successfully demo'd this stuff would be headline news, everywhere. It would be a massive. The big energy boys would be trying to buy them out for billions.
They aren't though, and nobody's presented anything remotely like a verified results. Hell, Orbo had demos.
that's pretty rapid progress in my book.
It's been years. There's still been nothing but hot air, despite all sorts of unverified claims like that there was a 1MW unit running a factory somewhere.
Maybe the most aggressive projections did not come through but do they ever? I'm not willing to wait until 2050 for some super expensive laser fusion or Tokakaks so I AM getting my hopes up and anyway he hasn't harmed anyone in the process or cost me a cent in taxes so I don't understand the hate.
Because he seems to be exhibiting all the hallmarks of a total charlatan.
Because he's seems to be exhibiting all the hallmarks of a total charlatan.
Because he's pulled these shenanigans before.
Because without people shouting this utter bullshit down at every turn we would no doubt see lots of uneducated people investing in this stuff and losing their money to the unscrupulous.
Because it's blatantly just the latest in a long line of ludicrous perpetual motion machines.
