Andrea said:Information will be given during and after the demo and you said: may be is the right time to make some leak of picture.
To make you wait, here is a photo of Andrea:

Bad of name and bad of fact: the photo has something strange… ( he,he,he ). By the way: who is the guy behind the schematic of the misterious gadget ?
Warm Regards,

It’s all rather mysterious, and could turn out to be nothing, but I’ll put it up here just in case people find it interesting:

    the photo is obviously shopped, the stuff in the front and the whiteboard are pasted into it. This is orchestrated. Rossi wants us to go wild about the whiteboard info and fill pages of comments on what this could mean. Who Pekka, Irina and Vitaly are etc, etc, etc. What a load of crap.

  • Rene

    Love the made to look sloppy hiding of omg seekrit sauce writings just over his shoulder. It is a photoshopped composite Rossi’s patent photo. Cute.

    Although X/Y addressed circuits to individually address a quark is a nice touch.

  • Pekka Janhunen

    “Dan Bad”is Daniel Badoual: this one can see from the google page of the drawing. A person with the same name has earlier made drawings for the domestic E-cat. A google search on him returns an info page ( ) and one patent from 1998 ( ). A retired mechanical design engineer from France who has worked e.g. for Philips. Probably just a small joke from his part which has nothing to do with Rossi and is not a leak of any kind.

      I am amused to see the “Pekka->Gamma Conversion” on that white board mockup. Immediately made me think of you!

  • bachcole

    I sure hope that this is real progress and not just a dream within the doze-off that Andrea has been doing to me recently. It does give me an up-tick of hope.

    Strange that AR does not know about Kilroy. Like the tennis court addition as well.

  • sam

    The idea of the wave form is smart though, incrementally increasing and diminishing.

  • Ged

    Seems Gerrit was just too powerful for you to beat this time!

  • cashmemorz

    Mid winter break from the cold blahs. A mild pick me up when my coffee don’t work. He. he. he. to you too. The last leg before the promised February demos from one or another new power producer is the hardest. So we get filler “news”. I have a pile of backed up data about various confirmations for new types of power. I guess I’ll just string them up like popcorn decorations for the last week of the holidays and hang it on my Christmas tree. Its all going in the garbage this weekend anyways.

    This looks to be a photoshop image done for fun. I am not a image expert, so this is just my 2 cents. It does look like a fun image, and I do hope we get a real image like this next to something they are actually selling soon.

    • Omega Z

      You’re correct, This was done in fun…

  • Alain Samoun

    January fools’ day,hope February won’t be the same.

  • hempenearth

    A little deliberate leak, certainly no golden shower!

    • Omega Z

      Andrea usually gives himself wiggle room. It is the blogs that try to affix exact times and events.

  • Zephir

    The Quark-X design looks like complete bogus for me. Why so many electric contacts, for example?
    Every contact would decrease the reliability of the industrial equipment.

    • Pekka Janhunen

      If you mean the “design” which is in the photo, I guess it’s supposed to look bogus because it’s a tongue-in-cheek joke made by an outsider. Or is there a real Quark-X design visible somewhere?

    The drawing in that “photo” is just a joke of the Reader! It is a paste of the original photo, in which I was showing the diploma of the US Patent, with a drawing of a presumptive QuarkX design that has been totally invented by the Reader, just to joke with us…look well, you will see that the drawing contains the character of a cartoon, he,he,he…
    Speaking seriously: yes, this year the official presentation should be done.
    Warm Regards,

    • Gerrit

      I will bet $20 that this years official presentation will not change the situation, nor give us any tangible proof that Rossi hasn’t been just fooling around for the last 6 years. If it happens at all.

      Who is the customer going to be this time ? “Goggle” a daughter of an unnamed entity from Mountain View, CA ? But in the end turns out to be Rossi’s auntie Rose again ?
