It should be painfully obvious that the positioning of a coil by a millimeter one way or the other could decide success or failure. and when you`ve got 10s of millimeters as a possible position, the chances for INCORRECT positioning, and thus FAILURE, are far greater than getting it right. This begs an exact replication first to verify operation, and then you can `get creatve`.

But there is a little problem with an EXACT replication. There is NO FRIGGIN INFO! STEORN, come on now, throw us a bone here. We do not know the core material for sure, the number of turns, the polarity of the magnets, the current draw, the gap between the magnets and coils, and we do not even know for sure if it works even after we get a PERFECT replication. We also have not been told whether or not the device they use for testing, with the coils laid horizontal, even shows the same COP>1 than the other design. We also do not know what the scope shot looks like on an orbo with vertical coils, because they have neglected to show any tests at all with that version except let us watch it spin. Since we do not know if the horizontal core device shows OU, we are guessing on magnet strength also. The magnets they tested the strength of, were not even part of either of their original demo`s. They were part of a demo built to show the inductance change. Therefore, it is IMPOSSIBLE to make an exact replication without some info. We can make a device that looks like an orbo, and acts like an orbo. but even if we got it right on accident, we wouldn`t even know if it was an orbo, or a crap load of assumptions thrown into a big pile that happened to work. But, we keep trying anyway. And that leaves most of us simply trying to replicate the orbo "effect", instead of replicating the orbo itself. Because it`s the only thing we really...
