Rossi: E-cat Test will be Streamed Live
Testing of Andrea Rossi’s 1MW e-cat cold fusion device is currently underway according to posts on the inventor’s blog. In a response to a question Rossi confirmed that the device will which is scheduled to begin a four month test next month and be unveiled to scientists and others is currently undergoing tests.
Rossi also stated that the test will be streamed live online but he did not say where. It would presumably be streamed live at his website. This will be interesting to see especially if it works out.
Rossi also stated that electricity production with the e-cat is at least one year away. This contradicts some of the claims others have made including some from Defkalion. In a response to a question Rossi stated:
“We are not ready to make electric power, as I always said, all our reactors so far produce only heat. Nevertheless, I think that in 1 year we will be able to produce electric power.”
This means that electricity production with e-cat is probably a year away. It would also seem to indicate that there are some bugs to work out with the system. It may also mean that Rossi simply hasn’t done the engineering or mechanical work necessary to build a working e-cat generator.
Of course Rossi will need to produce steam continuously before he can build a generator. If he can’t continuously produce steam he won’t be able to run a generator. Still we must remember that this is the first generation e-cat, expecting it to run a generator would be like trying to run today’s software on a thirty or forty year old computer.
Rossi also stated that he has a patent lawyer who is studying the America Invents Act the patent law reform passed by the US Senate last week. This law would affect any US patent application that he files for his technology. Rossi did not identify his lawyer.
