It seems that sometime last night, our time, there was an announcement that Industrial Heat (the venture capitalist firm partnered with Rossi) has filed for a world patent on the ECAT.
This patent description has very, very detailed text on it's operation. So much so that anyone reading it and is skilled in fabrication could make one. And a lot of people plan to do just that.
It does not delve into the "fuel" as that has been covered in Rossi's already won US patent received on the 25th.
The peanut gallery conjecture is that this is part of the overall, multi-pronged attempt of patent protection encompassing and all aspects of the E-Cat's operation but without saying the words - COLD FUSION or LENR or anything similar to that "crack-pot-pseudoscience" which immediately turns off the PO.
It allows for the protection of the device from many different aspects so as to prevent others from undermining Rossi, et al. plans in stealing away the device .
This is being accomplished by all the lawyer muscle provided by Cherokee Investments (that's the VC firm). There are purported to have some very big Boston law firm writing up this stuff.
It's nice to have deep pockets.
The "believers" like me, are in pandemonium with excitement of these last announcements. It stirs excitement and anticipation of what happens next.
Kinda of like watching a really riveting movie where you don't want to leave for a moment even to go to the restroom.
Very little is being said on this by the media. It figures as they have been hushed up about this from the beginning. But here's one small blurb about the latest revelations. From the Falls-Church Press!?! What? Who?
Anyway, this is the only thing I could find.
Gas prices are still dropping even during the Summer months. Oil prices for crude remain lower than in more than a decade.
Stock market is free falling. Global markets in turbulence.
$2.1 trillion erased from stocks in the last week.
Experts expect more to drop.
I guess this is what happens when you start shifting away 30% of the global economy from the ones that currently control it.
You know what it kind of reminds me of? It like in the movie Close Encounters in that one scene where the character played by Dreyfuss says to that women character as they are up in devil's tower watching it all unfold - "...we're the only ones that know!"
