A live chat with Sean McCarthy is still going on. One question, I submitted to the chat, about expected cost, was answered so far. I asked about the cost of a cell phone powering device based on the technology. McCarthy said that he expects the cost to be close to current technologies.
It is worth noting that McCarthy insisted that his company will only release the technology after a panel of 12 scientists has validated their claims, a process which will take months. Also he said the Steorn has no intention of manufacturing devices. They will license the tech to others companies to manufacture devices based on it.
McCarthy came across as quite calm and believable in the chat. But no technical details where provided “for intellectual property reasons”. McCarthy did however confirm that his technology is based on magnetic fields of permanent magnets.
