Hi Marcus! Sure! I know at least two organizations who are going to purchase one. One is in Australia, and another is in Finland. The Finns have a crowdfund project. https://mesenaatti.me/en/steornin-ikiliikkujatekniikan-tutkimusprojekti/ <- I'm trying to get in to record the electromagnetic fields + activities of both of the devices, the Ocube and the Ophone. I hope they'll sound juicy enough to be made electronic music out of.

From the point of view of.. >>> Shaun: (interrupts) D'you ever quit? D'you ever give up on this. >>> Pat: No, I won't. Because.. >>> Shaun: (interrupts) Is there more fight left in you.. Twelve fucking >>> years is a long time, any more fight left in Pat Corbett? >>> Pat: Listen, my fight hasn't begun yet. I haven't started yet. Because >>> this is not..

No. I, the truth of it is, yeah, >>> in the promoting something that blatantly looks like horse-shit, is that >>> you're going to get kicked around a lot. But, here's the other side of that >>> coin: You only have to win once.

I can lose a hundred times, and win >>> once. When I win once, we win. >>> --- >>> Shaun: Ok, so what we're going to do now is discuss the actual product >>> itself, this is what we call the O-Cube The O-Cube is a very simple device, >>> it's a power-brick or a power-cube that has one single USB output.

There's a standard USB PCB interface electronics, there's a >>> Lithium-Ion battery and then there's the Orbo powerpack. >>> Shaun: And how it actually works is very very simple.

The cost price of this unit is 1200 euros, we're also offering a 12 >>> month warranty return to base. >>> Shaun: Ok, so, the way that we're demonstrating function here is that >>> we're giving out the O-Cube to a variety of different people, and they will >>> be reporting back on their day-to-day use of it, at each of the subsequent >>> webinars. Pat, maybe you can tell us a couple of the people who are getting >>> it, and obviously there'll be more, and, as the process goes on. >>> Pat: Ok, the first of these companies is a company we've been working >>> with for the last couple of months, a company called Rabbithole Promotions. >>> This company works in the area of guerrilla marketing, and, (they're) very >>> edgy in their approach and it's, we think it's a perfect fit for us. >>> Shaun: Yeah, we think (that) they're going to do some really >>> interesting, and unusual things with the Powercube in terms of their own >>> day-to-day market and stuff. But we'll let them report back in the next >>> webinar. >>> Pat: Second company is a clothing company, also a Dublin-based company >>> called Brickbear. Ahm, same as, these guys are into some very different >>> type of clothing, and, we think there's.. there's a very nice fix as >>> regards what the Powercube can produce for them on a day-to-day basis. >>> Shaun: And while we do have a business relationship obviously with >>> Rabbithole and Brickbear, gone to (there) myself and Pat sizes, but.. >>> there's no actual formal relationship. One last thing that we should say is >>> that while the O-Cube is the first commercially available product with >>> Orbo, there's a lot of stuff that's happening behind the scenes with >>> respect to commercial licensing and what we're going to do is play you a >>> quick video of the first.. an interview with the founder of the first >>> commercial licensee of Orbo, and we'll let him speak for himself about his >>> business, and what they're doing with Orbo. >>> ---- >>> Liquid Solutions >>> Killian McGrath (Founder): Liquid Solutions manufactures and distributes >>> E-Juice products for the E-Cigarette industry. We manufacture them here in >>> Waterford in our own facility, we do all the testing independently from >>> outside the facility, and we produce a very high-grade product within this >>> facility. We've the class to produce about a hundred thousand bottles a >>> day, or five hundred thousand bottles a week, that's basically our >>> production capacity. Yeah, the functions have gone really crazy, like when >>> we started out first, we would've started out with a 650 milliamp battery. >>> You know, a user would use that, in a day, you know and they would charge >>> it again and they'd use it all over again the next day. They'd be using a >>> head that would burn about one point six mills of juice a day. Now, four >>> years forward, they're using heads that have 3 and 4 coils inside (of) >>> them, they would burn four or five times juice with less nicotine, so, >>> that's.. the trend is going there with the big vaporus, is they want less >>> nicotine, and more puff, ok, so we're now starting to manufacture three >>> milligram juice, whereas before, the weakest we done was six. Ok, now, >>> three is the highest in the dripping, because they're taking in so much >>> liquid to produce so much vapour, ok, they're still getting the amount of >>> nicotine that they need, but they're burning about four times more juice. >>> >>> Well, you have, I suppose everybody and their mother after you really, >>> if you think about it, because you know, the three big gorillas inside, >>> you've got the tobacco companies we're doing a lot of damage to them. The >>> E-Cig is doing so much damage to them now they wanna come in and take it >>> over. Then you have the pharmaceutical guys, OK, the guys that are sitting >>> in the background, they're like the little snipers, you know, they're >>> pushing off press-releases, they're pushing out this just to discredit the >>> product, why? Because nobody is buying patches, nobody's buying chewing >>> gum, nobody is buying champax(?), OK, they've lost a whole industry, this >>> product is taking over their industry, OK? >>> >>> Then you have the government side of it, the government is losing a lot >>> of money from it, on the short side, because on the short side, they're >>> losing revenue from taxes immediately, but on the long side, they would see >>> the benefits of that in five or ten years, because they'll have less >>> serious, I suppose carcinogenic-associated health problems, moving forward >>> with the population. They will have less respiratory problems, because >>> cigarettes are a huge cause of respiratory problems, in especially >>> overweight people, and, people that are getting older in age. So the whole >>> idea is that the British medical organization came out only a month ago and >>> they said that if everybody in the UK gave up cigarettes and went on to >>> electronic cigarettes, they would save 80,000 lives a year. >>> -- >>> Liquid Solutions & Orbo >>> Killian: In 2005 I would've went to a meeting in Steorn's offices in the >>> Innovation Park in the Watlands(?) I would've sat down and listened to what >>> the guys had found or were working on, and I would be that type of person, >>> I would be very interested in stuff like that. New, something that's new, >>> something that's cheeky and something that nobody else is doing. >>> So yeah, I fell in love with the product, with the technology, and, >>> yeah, that was 2005. 2006 you were making waves and you were moving along, >>> then we all know what happened in 2007 and 2008, we had the big crash. >>> Shaun: Fucking great, wasn't it! >>> Killian: Yeah that was brilliant. We all had fun there! And I suppose >>> when I started this project, Shaun, when I started three and a half years >>> ago with Wicked E-Juice and making the juices, and then I kind of got a >>> brain-wave one day and I said "Hmm, maybe we can get a battery from Steorn >>> that we don't need to charge". And that's what started this whole project. >>> But they're looking at today, they've gone up to 3,5 thousand milliamp >>> unit, with a .2 warm head(?), up to 50 watt, now 100 watt, I was in England >>> yesterday and I saw my first 300 watt battery (laughs), so, it's gone >>> totally to the other side, it's gone to the total other extreme, whether >>> that's going to stay going that way, or it's a fad and it'll eventually >>> come back down to fairly standard products where you're using a 20 watt >>> product or a 10 watt product which is roughly around 9 volts, 8 volts.. >>> Killian: Ahh.. No frustration. Little bit behind the times, but you >>> know, it's not a lollypop we're making here. You know what I mean? We're >>> breaking new ground here. This has never ever been done before.

We're not getting into any technical details at >>> this stage. But what we'll be doing is hearing from the guys who are using >>> it.
