As an extension of their Directory:Steorn's Orbo 'Power Cube' USB Charger technology, Directory:Steorn Free Energy of Ireland, today posted an image of their cell phone, which will never have to be plugged in because it's solid state inner workings pulls from the wheelwork of nature using a principle of magnetism.

When I was visiting them in Dublin three years ago, the CEO, Shaun McCarthy told me that after their electric water heater technology moved far enough along, his next project was to have a phone that would never have to be recharged or plugged in.

While I'm glad to see this development, I'm a bit baffled that they would not go with a full touch screen instead of the old phone pad with a display. This might have been awesome 8 years ago, but today, everyone loves the versatility and power of the full touch screen.

So while this looks great, I doubt in that iteration they will see many sales. It's too yesterday.

In response to this comment I posted on that image, François Bouquin replied:

: Likely because a touch screen needs too much energy, more than what ORBO is probably able to produce in this price/size range. Just my 2 cents.

They also posted photos of the video shoot they did, which will be available later.

Esa Ruoho commented:

: It would be easier for the Orbo iPhone charger to come out as a separate appliance rather than them trying to go into creating their own operating system or going with android whotever and being stuck there.

Stuart Campbell said:

: From what I am seeing here, many business people are switching back to the older style phones. I think the novelty of smart-phones are wearing off, plus their constantly having to be charged all the time is also a problem. I am not sure that there is the space to have the Orbo charging system inside a smart-phone, and still keep it compact.

: The reason many give for going retro, is that they just don't need all the features of the smart-phone anymore. Plus it becomes too time consuming using a smart-phone.

: Also the plans these days are also much larger and beneficial for talk and text, and very little metadata in comparison.

: If the OPhone works as stated, I don't think they will have a shortage of orders. Most won't likely be from your average punter, more likely specialist outfits that would find this 'always-connected' technology a real advantage. More to the point, were Steorn to come out with something like Sterling had hoped for, I think that demand would vastly exceed supply-capability, that would just end up giving ammunition to the debunkers. Going 'retro' like this, they might keep the hounds at bay, while actually generating revenue! The real point of contention will probably be the price - if they are asking an eye-boggling €1300 for the O-cube, what will the OPhone end up being priced at?

Utah solar-production company, IAUS, actually a tax

Relevance: Directory:Buyer Beware > Directory:Solar > Directory:IAS

Here's some bad news on a company we've covered quite a bit in years past.

Utah solar-production company actually a tax ‘sham,’ feds say

I was contacted maybe a year ago by someone looking into what is reported in this story. We've had IAUS on our Directory:Buyer Beware page for a few years, after I went to view their demo plant and saw plastic strewn all over. The vibration from the wind shatters the plastic of the Fresnel lenses they use. They had told me they had fixed that problem in a demo site down in Texas, so I gave them a little breathing room. But when a paper in the Delta area was doing a story, and informed me that the Texas arrays were in the same shape, I moved IAUS to the Buyer Beware page.

It is a great concept, but apparently dishonesty and inadequate engineering are getting the best of them. In the above story, they say they might just take up an offer to go to China. If they take their dishonesty with them, I'm not sure how well they'll fare there.

Smart meters are detrimental to health, pose a fire danger without any responsibility for those who installed them, and infringe on privacy, boosting the governments spying and intrusion capabilities.

Now, for a few days, you can watch Josh Del Sol's excellent documentary for free.

I met Josh at the Event:2013:Global Breakthrough Energy Movement Conference (Breakthrough Energy Movement) in Boulder, CO, USA two years ago. I interviewed him last year. He's doing a great work.

Here's a cool story from MIT Technology Review (November 23, 2015). I wonder what the price point and maintenance feasibility are for this. Just because something works doesn't mean it's going to be practical.

“Plant Lamps” Turn Dirt and Vegetation into a Power Source


: Researchers in Peru have a new way to capture electricity from plants and bacteria to help rainforest communities.

: Researchers at the Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología (UTEC) have developed a technique for capturing the electricity emitted from plants. Actually, to be fair, it’s Geobacter— a genus of bacteria that live in the soil — that do the grunt work. Robby Berman at Slate explains the process:

:: “[N]utrients in plants encounter microorganisms called ‘geobacters’ in the dirt, and that process releases electrons that electrodes in the dirt can capture. A grid of these electrodes can transfer the electrons into a standard battery.”

: UTEC has partnered with global ad agency FCB to produce 10 prototypes and distribute them to houses in the rainforest village of Nuevo Saposoa. Each contains an electrode grid buried in dirt, in which a single plant grows. The grid connects to a battery, which powers a large LED lamp attached to an adjustable arm on the outside of the box. The UTEC video below shows the boxes in action (including a money shot of a lamp being triumphantly turned on):


: (YouTube October 30, 2015)

: For Nuevo Saposoa and other underserved communities, this is more than just a crackerjack bit of biological engineering. Electricity, and lighting in particular, are a very real need. Berman writes:

:: “In the rainforest villages of Nuevo Saposoa and Pucallpa in Perù, there’s an existing electrical grid, but since a flood last March damaged its cables, it hasn’t been working. Forty-two percent of the communities in the rainforest don’t have even that much. Sundown means lights out, a real problem for families with small children—and for students who need to study—unless they resort to unhealthy and dangerous kerosene lamps.”

: [...] If the “plant lamps” (that’s UTEC’s name, not mine) are successful, their appeal isn’t going to be limited to rainforest communities. Who wouldn’t want a houseplant that cut back on their electric bill? Add a bit of green to your bank account and your bedroom.

: It’s worth noting that UTEC’s researchers are hardly the first to make use of Geobacter — they’re some of biotech’s most talented microbes. In 2009 Time named the “electric microbe” one of its 50 best inventions of the year. Recent research confirms they’re electrically conductive to boot, which means in theory they can act like nanowires for transmitting electricity. In addition to power generation, Geobacter have also garnered attention for their ability to metabolize pollution like radioactive material.

: As elegant as the plant lamps are, it’s easy to imagine even bigger and better applications. What sort of power could an entire garden generate? Is there a way to combine pollution-tolerant plants with the electric grid and bacteria — might a grove of trees help reduce soil pollution and provide power? [...]
