Rossi: I am Sure the E-Cats Will Evolve Like Cars Have

As groundbreaking as a device as the E-Cat is, we should remember that like any new technology that comes on the market, it is in a primitive state. Any technology with as much promise as this will, like any breakthrough invention, become subject to improvement, adaption and refinement.

Andrea Rossi was asked on his site, “Do you think that the current E-Cats are obtaining the peak efficiencies of this technology or do you believe that further refinements will bring even higher performance in the future? I understand if you decide not to answer a speculative question.”

Rossi answered, “I am sure that the E-Cats will evolve, like the Ford T evolved in a 2011 NASCAR Ford.”

The Model T was revolutionary– it changed the world. It was functional and brought motorized transportation to the masses — a huge improvement over previous options for most people. But it was just the beginning of the development of automobile technology. We now have cars that Henry Ford probably never dreamed of — but he set in motion an evolutionary process that will most likely result in cars far supersede even this:

Ford, along with other automakers are now looking beyond the internal combustion engine. Before long they may be looking at E-Cat based technology to continue the evolution which was set in motion by the Model T. And just as Ford’s cars have been transformed, so too may the E-Cat — into things we cannot today imagine.

    Cars are still not affordable by all the poor in the world, thank goodness, but the E-CAT must be affordable by all with no discrimination or favour.
    It must not be there to make the rich, richer and more powerful than they are.

    If we did not have such a crazy financial system it would put millions out of pointless work, circular jobs that are created just to keep the system going.

    People should celebrate every job lost, not fear it happening.

    I’d say the E-Cat is the LENR equivalent of Thomas Savery’s “fire-engine” for the steam technology.

    Actually, I would say that Savery is more nearly comparable to Pons/Fleischmann, and Rossi more comparable to James Watt.

    • Renzo

      James Watt was a too great improvement on previous steam engine and the E-Cat is still too crude and with low output compared to its potential, perhaps we can agree on Rossi = Newcomen 🙂

    sorry for being down to earth but the more people examine the e-cat, the more it appears as a fraud. As much as I’d like to see cheap/abundant energy as everyone else, I very much doubt we’ll see this with the e-cat

    latest round of stuff debunked on the device :

    so yeah, measurements are impressive, too bad they probably have nothing in common with reality. Everyone was too blinded by those promises too look close enough, the suspension of disbelief needs to stop now…

    There will be a lot of “we never landed on the moon” postings.
