Thank you user ponto for the link. I think the problem may be that the microphone being used is an omnidirectional audio
mike used for musical recording or audio analytics rather than a cardioid pattern used for voice recording of a human speaker
for example. Shaun Steorn says he is not a scientist, and errors like this make me think he is being honest when he says it.
...Similar to not knowing led lamps don't emit much IR heat. A audio spectrum filter with a VGA could clean this up to some
extent. Maybe someone cannibalized his microphone's electret?

He is saying that the Orbo device is not based in either magnetic or electronic devices as he was historically building
but based in electrostatic or electret analogies of his magnetic devices. So his self recharging electrostatic battery
recharges a standard lithium battery buffer. He has a boost and buck inverter that can convert any DC voltage to
5Volts. Key components are manufactured in China.

So he then discusses the logistics of putting this new self charging battery into existing products, phones, e-cigarettes,
I-pads, and so on. He then gets back to discussing back to the logistics of product manufacturing the demo-device and
applying this to a e-cig device and I-pad charger.


My comment is that it is somewhat dicey to build a demo-product based on something that needs additional
manufacturing R&D based in materials engineering like his battery with a very large payoff in the future like the
history of the lithium battery. I would sort of be more inclined to pay big bucks for something entirely mechanical
like a wristwatch or something like a completely standard electronic circuit with fully standard subsystem
component lifetimes.

I wish his company good luck, I think products like the HEPAHEAT concept bodes well for the company's
future. I love seeing products manufactured, as invention only partially hacks it in bringing new products
into existence and therefore value to human society. Bring the product to the market place and then
surf the waves of success that spring from it.
