orbo.jpgWe were skeptical yesterday when we reported on all the hype about a supposed free, clean perpetual energy source. We suggested it was hoax.

Apparently it is. Someone who spoke to a representative of the company, after the Orbo device apparently broke down with a “heat” problem, writes the following:

Most tellingly he admitted before 4 witnesses that there was no load bearing Orbo device inside the Kinetica museum. No weights being lifted by any device. Just a spinning Orbo (still requiring fixing) . He explicitly said that “the load bearing device is back in Dublin”.

Apologies for the distraction.
