After a little bit of activity this weekend, it's been dead silent over in the forums from Steorn. With all the new folks joining the forums, at least we've have had some entertainment. I figured I'd share some of Dr. Mike's comments on his upcoming trip to London:
There won't be time to prove anything, but I hope to hook up some magnetometers and 'scopes so I can measure fields at various points in the operational cycle. I'd also like to hook up microswitchs to measure delay times. And I think just touching it and getting a feel for what it's doing will be interesting. If it's got more than 100 Watts power I'll have to careful (might want to rub M'abuse's nose in it ), but I think just giving it some physical drag will tell me a lot.Also today Dr. Mike confirmed that Sean has sent him the PR agencies reasoning for not making the demo dates public. Here's Dr. Mike's opinion on the whole thing:
I will also try to rearrange simple parts to see how things fail. Sometimes it is easier to understand failure than to understand function, and that may give us all some clues as well.
It makes no sense to me. But I'm an engineer/physicist, not a marketing expert!
The person who sent the advice is definitly a marketing expert.
