Today, Steorn CEO Shaun McCarthy posted this announcement on his Facebook Page:
Tomorrow, fifteen years after starting our little company Steorn, we finally launch our first two Orbo based products. It’s been a journey for sure, we have had the shit kicked out of us on the road, but we always kept going, we always tried to have fun, and we have always tried to do the right thing.
Fifteen years is a long time, but it’s only the start. I have heard many people compare Orbo to the Model T, it’s a technology at the very start of its journey into people’s lives. I believe that Orbo as it exists today is not near the Model T in terms of what it is capable of, its Christiann Huygens first combustion engine. Many people will find our first products to be too expensive and too low in function. Hey, don’t buy them, they are not for you, but they will be!
I will not even attempt to thank everyone who has helped us on this long and interesting journey, it’s in the many of hundreds if not thousands. The next part of the road will be fun, but not without its potholes and turns, and we are looking forward to it, we love a good fight!
The two products are going to be, I believe, the O-Cube USB charger, and an E-Cigarette (under the brand name of Wicked E-Juice). In the photo below, you can see finance director Patrick Corbett with two products on the table in front of him. I think this is taken at filming for the webinar that will be held tomorrow.
