Now Here's A Surprise: 'Free Energy' Company Cancels Demo

A company called Steorn's been getting lots of press this week with its claim to have developed a machine that it claims produces "free, clean and constant energy", violating the law of conservation of energy along the way. It hardly seemed newsworthy since it essentially appeared to just be the latest iteration of something cold fusion that promises something radical but constantly fails to deliver. It's hardly surprising, then, to see Steorn postpone its demonstration indefinitely, apparently because excessive heat from TV cameras caused technical problems. Steorn says it will try to find a new date for the demo over the next few weeks, but somehow we doubt the laws of physics or thermodynamics will disappear in that time.
