From Steorn's Website:
"Due to technical difficulties we will now be live from London on the 5th July."Maybe they let Dr. Mike take it apart, and then they had trouble putting it back together!
According to various news articles and blog sites, Steorn's July Demo of an over unity device will start today at 6pm, London time. From RTE News:
Sceptics can view the device lifting a weight from four different camera angles online.I am certain that this media event will be bigger than the Economist Ad. We're going to see Sean McCarthy in a zillion interviews, all mostly fluff I'm sure. What I'm looking forward to seeing is Dr. Mike's opinion. If he's baffled after two days of examining the device, I'm pretty sure there will be some fence movement.
Mr McCarthy said the company had decided against using the technology to illuminate a light-bulb as the use of wires would attract further suspicion from a scientific community that has already dismissed the device.
Here are links to other websites mentioning the demo:
Here are some additional Stories starting to appear today:
“This is as big a claim as you can possibly make in the world of technology and science,” said McCarthy.Ireland.com
“It’s too good to be true but it is true,” said McCarthy, “It will have such an impact on everything we do.”
“The only analogy I can give is if you had absolute proof that God wasn’t real,” said McCarthy.

Mr McCarthy insisted Steorn are contractually obliged to publish whatever the scientists conclude in full, adding that the €8 million invested in the technology to date and the company's reputation were at stake.
"Obviously Steorn and Sean McCarthy would never recover if there is a negative result here. But we don't see that as even an outside possibility," he said.
