EESTOR IS REAL!!!

The updated press release today makes public the first significant 3rd party validation of EEStor's technology. There are no known dielectrics with these properties.

According to Rudyard Istivan, a competitor to EEStor Inc., "the announcement is impressive" and may cause him to rethink some of his future investments in his own company.

Temperature coefficient is an indicator of voltage coefficient in dielectrics. See audio interview at TheEEStory.com.

Give Rudyard Istivan credit for realizing almost immediately what has happened. If he is anything like other founders I've worked with, there is a emotional bond with any company you start. It can't be easy for him to make sound business judgments at a time like this, but he certainly seems to have realized how much trouble he is in.

I think that is being a bit presumptive. He had the decency to say that 'it's impressive' but that doesn't mean he's winding down the business yet.
When the first EESUs start rolling of the factory floor, then, I think, people will start to take note.

@sevaan,

I agree most people don't realize the significance of this announcement. This isn't energy density and it isn't a working EESU, but at least all the nonsense of EEStor being a scam or incompetent will no longer dominate the conversations. This is a turning point, how soon you decide to turn is up to each of us.

Who is Rudyard Istivan? I googled the name and came up only with this blog reference. I googled 'Istavan' alone and didn't come across a single mention of a 'Rudyard' in the first eight pages of links. I'm a Zenn investor who hopes it all works out but I'm a little puzzled by this. If a 'Rudyard Istivan' heads his own company, can someone please post the name of the company. TIA

I have been following the eestory for almost a year now and have never contributed to a discussion, only observed with interest. Now it is time to get out of the woodwork. Here is an independent article from 2007 discussing temperature and voltage vs. capacitance:

I had to look it up for myself to believe it. It seems like this is the real deal if the temperature and voltage effect on capacitance is equally large.

OK, mystery solved. Incorrect spelling on the blog. The correct spelling is 'Rudyard Istvan'. Carry on, chaps.

Fair play to Rudyard. I agree that there is alot riding on this for him so it cannot be easy to accept that some other show in town just may have something that could change the outlook for his business. A also agree that most people do not realise the significance of the annoucement yet. The physical reality of a device will change all that.
