An early prototype of Orbo designed and built in partnership with Steorn by Dutch micro-engineering firm Kinetron which affectionately became known as the ‘K-Toy’ or ‘Pac-Man’ device, due to it’s characteristic pac-man like perspex base. Essentially, this is how a watch-maker would build a free energy prototype.

The device pictured only completes one full cycle and was never engineered to repeat, but nevertheless it showed the effect.
