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.

If we are lucky, your dream is not impossible.
The E-Cat X seems good. F9: dream or nightmare?
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!
