Brilliouin lives! interviewed Brilliouin in an hour long video.

The video starts unbelievably irrelevant.   Skip to the 30 minute mark to get to the meat of the discussion.

First Robert Godes (Pronounced goddess) discusses the technology from a scientific perspective.  Their view of what’s going on is quite different than anything I have heard before.  He talks about ramp up from H1 to H2 to H3 to H4 (Ever heard of hydrogen 4?) then to helium 4.

At minute 42, Robert George starts talking to more regular folks.  At minute 49 they put up a picture of their device, and start talking about their marketing plans.

They say that they expect to be “manufacture ready” ie, ready to let manufacturers begin to tool up, in about 1 year.  So with Brilliouin, we’re probably looking at 3 years out at the earliest.

They also have a cool (100c) and hot (600c) models.

They expect to get 30KW of thermal from 300w, a COP of 100! (Minute 1:38).

At the point of this publication, I haven’t listened to the entire interview.

Oh, by the way, they are using nickel!   Their nickel is not consumed!  Only hydrogen is consumed.

Thanks to for putting me on to this.

PS: I’m leaving tomorrow morning to try to shoot a moose.  So I won’t be killing off spam through the weekend.

    Great find an good luck with your Moose.

    I find it incredibly hard to believe that the nickel matrix that the hydrogen is evaporated in doesn’t degrade when exposed to ultra-low momentum neutrons. BTW, Brilliouin went a different route, first scoring a great contract with a progressive energy hedge fund, then (buying) getting a patient in China, then going to a well established third party for scalability. The Brilliouin boiler, using this business plan, will inevitably hit the market.

    Well worth watching the video. Interesting that they got the patent done in exchange for equity – there was obviously enough to really convince the patent attorneys.

    Although I personally feel that the theory is a bit wrong, as I’ve said before what is critical about a theory is that it directs the research in the right direction. Robert Godes has done the work and got the results, and looks like he’s set to achieve a commercial device.

    It’s very hard to predict when it will hit the market, but if he really hits that end-2014 target for passing it to manufacturing then could be around 3 years to market. Unlike Defkalion and Rossi he has definitely demonstrated his control over the process, and so I think it’s a pretty good bet he’ll deliver pretty well on-time.

    Passed to manufacturing in about a year, eh? Wow! Gee whiz! Hydrogen 4 to Helium 4. No problem.

    Wiki on hydrogen isotopes: “Other, highly unstable nuclei (4H to 7H) have been synthesized in the laboratory but not observed in nature. The most stable radioisotope is tritium, with a half-life of 12.32 years. All heavier isotopes are synthetic and have a half-life less than a zeptosecond (10-21 second).”

    “Marketing plans”. That’s the bit we’ll get to see. Licence sales. Stock marketing roadshows. They will be real enough. Rossi can do that. Defkalion can do that. Easy.

    But magic energy machines. In three years? Not in three hundred. (And not in a zeptosecond.) Not from Rossi. Not from Godes. Not from anybody.

  5. Craig Binns Says:

    Also from wiki on Hydrogen 4:

    “In the 1955 satirical novel The Mouse That Roared, the name quadium was given to the hydrogen-4 isotope that powered the Q-bomb that the Duchy of Grand Fenwick captured from the United States.”

    I think this is all a satire modelled on old jokes. That novel is worth a read, by the way. I read it when I was about twelve years old. Good laugh.
