E-Cat X Light and Heat in Every House ‘Not Impossible’

I know this is more teasing, and I’m sure we won’t get specifics from Rossi at this point, but I find this exchange today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics quite interesting and telling regarding E-Cat X:

Dr Andrea Rossi,
I have a dream: an E-Cat that makes light and heat in every house.
I dream this can happen before I pass on: I am 79 years old.
If there is one man in the world able to make true this dream, that man is you.
Godspeed,
Rick

Richard Elstrom:
If we are lucky, your dream is not impossible.
The E-Cat X seems good. F9: dream or nightmare?
Warm Regards,
A.R.

This is another semi-confirmation that E-Cat X is dealing with electricity production in domestic products. I believe the E-Cat X has been running since Sunday morning now, and Rossi still says ‘it seems good’. Regarding the ‘dream or nightmare’ comment, I suppose that depends on who you ask. Certainly if an E-Cat that can meet domestic electricity and heating needs would turn the world on its head and upset the status quo tremendously. From a consumer’s point of view, who would not like to have utility bills slashed from a new source of electricity generation? But there would be economic, political and social consequences that could be very disruptive.

Still there’s so much we don’t know at this point, and this kind of comment is more stuff to feed our dreams or nightmares!

    Perhaps a non-ionizing version of G Miley’s plasma generator could be of help: http://www.google.com/patents/US5352954

    I’ll believe it when something comes to market. Words might carry weight but an actual working devise is what I want to see. Bring it to market, I have money to burn.

      If you have money to burn, then you don’t need an E-cat for heat. 🙂

    It seems that AR has a proper concern for the potentially highly disruptive consequences of widely available LENR. Has anyone a clue how these could be managed?

    What the heck does that “F9” mean?

      From Rossi yesterday:

      “Andrea Rossi

      Peter Forsberg:
      Thank you for your question, probably shared by many Readers: F9 is born as a joke, eventually became a shortcut that stands for ” Disclaimer: the results of the tests on course could finally be either positive or negative”.
      A Reader of us, in a comment months ago, proposed, joking, to dial “F plus a number” to get the mantra of the disclaimer, and I complied saying: ” OK, from now on instead of that phrase we will just say F9.
      Thank you for your kind wishes. We are working strongly to get the success: F9.
      Warm Regards,
      A.R.”

      I believe it’s short form for “be the results positive or negative” AR’s standard disclaimer after stating anything about the performance of the E-Cat.

    Considering the investments that will be necessary to bring this to market, without a patent, it could take decades. While with a patent, it could start within a short time.

    Most people think patents are all about profit. Well, Regardless who manufactures these devices, They will make a profit or go broke & close the doors. First thing an Investor is concerned about is his initial investment. Is he going to get it back. Profits, tho very important are actually secondary. Tho without profit, Money will be invested elsewhere or it wont be invested at all.

    This isn’t software & a couple $1000 worth of equipment with some programing knowledge & entering some code. This is Brick & Mortar & literally 10’s of Billions of dollars in hard investments. There are Toxic materials involved. There are required tests & certifications that You have to pay for before you can manufacture anything for sale.

    Patents are just a window of opportunity to recoup your investment. 20 years at most & most patents are actually running before a product ever hits the market. If Rossi’s is granted on his original patent app, He has about 10 years.

    Software: If this product should cause damage to your system or results in a massive loss of data. We are not responsible. Use at Your Own Risk.

    Hardware: If My LENR Reactor should blow up & burn your house to the ground with everything in it, We are not responsible. Use at Your Own Risk.
    Do you think the latter will fly?

      You can supplement certain foods from vertical farming, but it’s more expensive. There are also the staple crops that you can’t vertical farm. Well actually you could but the cost would be astronomical & very inefficient.
