I think it is clear now that Andrea Rossi will be holding a demonstration of the E-Cat QX in November. I know it’s an event that many readers here have been anticipating for many months now, and I expect there will be a lot of interest among readers here.
Dr. Mike has given some good suggestions in his recent article anticipating the Rossi demo, and I thought it might be useful to put up a dedicated thread where people could post what they would like to see at the E-Cat presentation. I will let AR know about the thread and invite him to read it, perhaps there will be items posted that he can consider.
Probably there will be suggestions that he will not be able to, or not wish to do, but it will be an opportunity to provide some some input for his consideration.
I think we should be realistic in our expectations, and suggestions. There had been a lot of discussion lately about combining the E-Cat with engines as a means of generating electricity or driving vehicles, but I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of those things at the presentation. On the Journal of Nuclear Physics yesterday, Rossi made this comment:

Sorry, but we are making an R&D on the Stirling engines that is too premature for what you say.
The scope of the demo is to introduce the E-Cat QX as a heat maker, not to show particular applications that at the moment are not ready.
Rossi had provided few details about the setup he will be using, but has said he will be using water (or some kind of fluid) calorimetry to measure the amount of energy produced by the E-Cat. Presumably there will be a means of measuring the energy input. Beyond that I don’t really know what to expect. So if you have ideas that you think might be useful which are within the scope of what AR has outlined, feel free to share them here, and I will bring them to Rossi’s attention.
