Looks like those folks at Steorn are going to do a 'demo' of their alleged free energy machine. I think I can safely predict (a) Steorn will claim success; (b) the reporting will generally give them the benefit of the doubt and "report the controversy"; and (c) we will not cure all the world's energy needs with magnet-based machines that violate the first law of thermodynamics.
UPDATE: Wow - it turns out that I'd overestimated Steorn. They couldn't get their demo to work. Apparently they'd decided to ignore back-ups, rehearsals, and contingency planning in addition to the laws of physics. So, was this self-deception, the long con, a postmodern publicity stunt designed to show how effectively they could market vaporware, or something else?
