Steorn Ltd /ˈstjɔːrn/ was a small, private record growth association shaped in Dublin, Ireland. In Aug 2006, it announced that it had grown a record to yield “free, clean, and consistent energy” around an apparent incessant suit machine, something that is discordant to a law of charge of energy, a elemental element of physics.[4]

Steorn challenged a systematic village to examine their claim[5] and, in Dec 2006, pronounced that it had comparison a jury of scientists to do so.[6] In Jun 2009 a jury gave a unanimous outcome that Steorn had not demonstrated a prolongation of energy.[7]

Steorn gave dual open demonstrations of their technology. In a initial demonstration, in Jul 2007 during a Kinetica Museum in London, a device unsuccessful to work.[8] The second demonstration, that ran from Dec 2009 to Feb 2010 during a Waterways Visitor Centre in Dublin, concerned a engine powered by a battery and supposing no eccentric justification that additional appetite was being generated.[9] It was discharged by a press as an try to build a incessant suit machine,[10] and a broadside stunt.[11]

In Nov 2016, a association laid off a staff, sealed a facility, and prepared for liquidation.[12][13]


Steorn was founded in 2000[14] and, in Oct 2001, their website settled that they were a “specialist use association providing programme government and technical comment recommendation for European companies enchanting in e-commerce projects”. Steorn is a Norse word definition to beam or manage.

In May 2006, The Sunday Business Post reported that Steorn was a former dot-com association that was building a microgenerator product shaped on a same element as self-winding watches, as good as formulating e-commerce websites for customers. The association had also recently lifted about €2.5 million from investors and was 3 years into a four-year growth devise for a microgenerator technology.[3] Steorn after settled that a comment given in this speak was dictated to forestall a trickle per their giveaway appetite technology.[15]

The company’s investment story shows several share allotments for money between Aug 2000 and Oct 2005,[16] a investments totalling €3 million.[3] In 2006, Steorn cumulative €8.1 million in loans from a operation of investors in sequence to continue their research, and these supports were also converted into shares.[17] Steorn pronounced that they would find no serve appropriation while attempting to infer their free-energy explain in sequence to denote their genuine enterprise for validation.[17]


In Jun 2016, a association sensitive shareholders that it had unsuccessful to accommodate expectations, that association owner Shaun (Seán) McCarthy was being transposed as CEO, and that handling costs were scarcely €1 million per year.[12][13] After investments totaling scarcely €23 million over a ten-year period, in Nov 2016 a association close down and laid off a staff, due to a miss of additional appropriation to continue operations.[12][13]

Free appetite claim[edit]

In Aug 2006, Steorn placed an proclamation in The Economist observant that they had grown a record that assembled “free, purify and consistent energy”.[5] Called Orbo, a record was pronounced to violate charge of appetite though had been certified by 8 eccentric scientists.[18] None of these scientists would speak to a media, and Steorn suggested that this was given they did not wish to turn inextricable in a controversy.[18]

Views on a technology[edit]

No specific sum of a workings of a claimed record were done public. McCarthy settled in a 2006 RTÉ radio interview, “What we have grown is a approach to erect captivating fields so that when we transport turn a captivating fields, starting and interlude during a same position, we have gained energy”.[19] In 2011, Steorn’s website was updated to advise that a Orbo is shaped on captivating fields that change over time. Barry Williams of a Australian Skeptics has forked out that Steorn is “not a initial association to explain they have unexpected detected a supernatural skill of draw that allows we to get giveaway energy”[4] while Martin Fleischmann says that it is not convincing that positioning of captivating fields could emanate energy.[18]

Following a assembly between McCarthy and Professor Sir Eric Ash in Jul 2007, Ash reported that “the Orbo is a automatic device that uses absolute magnets on a edge of a rotor and serve magnets on an outdoor shell.”[20] During this meeting, McCarthy referred to a law of charge of appetite as systematic dogma.[20] However, charge of appetite is a elemental element of physics,[4] some-more privately a effect of a unwavering inlet of earthy laws with time by Noether’s Theorem. Ash pronounced that there was no comparison with eremite convictions given there is no coherence in selecting to accept that appetite is always conserved.[20] Rejecting charge of appetite would criticise all scholarship and technology.[20] Ash also shaped a opinion that McCarthy was truly assured in a effect of his invention though that this self-assurance was a box of “prolonged self-deception.”[20]

Many people have indicted Steorn of enchanting in a broadside attempt nonetheless Steorn denied such accusations.[21] Eric Berger, essay on a Houston Chronicle website, commented: “Steorn is a former e-business association that saw a marketplace disappear during a bust. It stands to reason that Steorn has retooled as a Web selling association and is regulating a “free energy” graduation as a height to uncover destiny clients how it can precedence imitation promotion and a sharp Web site to foster their products and ideas”.[11] Thomas Ricker during Engadget suggested that Steorn’s free-energy explain was a device to urge code approval and to assistance them sell Hall probes,[22] while Josh Catone, facilities editor for Mashable, believes that it was merely an elaborate hoax.[23]

Jury process[edit]

In a proclamation in The Economist, Steorn challenged scientists to form an eccentric jury to exam their record and tell a results.[24] Within 36 hours of a proclamation being published, 420 scientists contacted Steorn[25] and, on 1 Dec 2006, Steorn announced it had comparison a jury.[6] It was headed by Ian MacDonald, emeritus highbrow of electrical engineering during a University of Alberta, and a routine began in Feb 2007.[7]

In Jun 2009 a jury announced a unanimous outcome that “Steorn’s attempts to denote a explain have not shown a prolongation of energy. The jury is therefore ceasing work”.[7] Dick Ahlstrom, essay in a Irish Times, resolved from this that Steorn’s record did not work.[7] Steorn responded by observant that given of problems in implementing a record a concentration of a routine had been on providing a jury with exam information on captivating effects for study. Steorn also pronounced that these problems had been resolved and doubtful a jury’s findings.[7]


On 4 Jul 2007, a record was to be displayed during a Kinetica Museum, Spitalfields Market, London. A section assembled of transparent cosmetic was prepared so that a arrangement of magnets could be seen and to denote that a device operated but outmost appetite sources.[8][26] The open proof was behind and afterwards cancelled given of technical difficulties. Steorn primarily pronounced that a problems had been caused by extreme feverishness from a lighting.[8][27]

A second proof ran between 15 Dec 2009 and Feb 2010 during a Waterways Visitor Centre in Dublin, and was streamed around Steorn’s website.[28] The proof was of a device powered by a rechargeable battery. Steorn pronounced that a device assembled some-more appetite than it consumed and recharged a battery.[9] No concrete sum of a record were suggested and no eccentric justification of Steorn’s explain was provided.[9]

On 1 Apr 2010 Steorn non-stop an online growth community, called a Steorn Knowledge Development Base (SKDB), that they pronounced would explain their technology. Access was accessible usually underneath looseness on remuneration of a fee.[29]

In May 2015, Steorn put an “Orbo PowerCube” on arrangement behind a bar of a pub in Dublin. The PowerCube was a tiny box that a pub website claimed contained a “perpetual suit motor” that compulsory no outmost appetite source. The brick was shown charging a mobile phone. Steorn claimed to be behaving some “basic margin trials” in undisclosed locations.[30]

Orbo phone charger[edit]

Beginning in Dec 2015, Steorn began usurpation orders for dual products, including a phone charger,[31][32] by email only. The proclamation was posted usually to a Facebook page patrician “Orbo” and a Steorn YouTube channel.[33] In early December, McCarthy pronounced that he was watchful for a initial conveyance of a dual products, a Orbo Phone and a Orbo Cube, from a manufacturer in China.[34] Steorn described a Orbo Cube as a showcase for a record rather than a mass-market product, with a Cube retailing during €1,200.[32]
