I AM RECEIVENG EMAILS REGARDING THE “MILLIONAIRE2 WHO OFFERS 1 MILLION FOR A TEST AND REGARDING WHAT WE THINK OF SOME WANNABE COMPETITORS WHO WILL MAKE OTHER TESTS ON A DEVICE OF THEM: I HAVE NOT TIME TO ANSWER SINGULARLY, SO HERE IS THE FINAL ANSWER:
1- MILLIONAIRE TEST: I AM THE CEO OF LEONARDO CORPORATION AND RECENTLY LEONARDO CORPORATION BECAME PROPERTY OF A TRUST OF INVESTORS TO WHOSE ATTORNEYS I HAVE TO ANSWER. THIS, COMBINED WITH THE FACT THAT OUR 1 MW PLANTS HAVE BEEN SOLD TO AN ENTITY THAT WANTS NOT TO BE DISCLOSED (WE ARE UNDER NDA) FORBIDS ME TO TAKE DECISIONS ABOUT THIS ISSUE WITHOUT THE PERMISSIONS OF THE ATTORNEYS; THE OPINION OF THEM IS THAT THIS STUNT IS NOT SERIOUS AND THAT OUR TECHNOLOGY DOES NOT TO BE PROVEN BY A STUNT, BUT BY A REGULAR OPERATION BY THE CUSTOMERS. WE HAVE TO WORK ON MANUFACTURING LINES TO MAKE RELIABLE AND ECONOMIC OUR PRODUCTS.
2- COMPETITORS: WE NEVER COMMENT ON OUR COMPETITORS, BUT STILL WE DO NOT SEE ANY COMPETITOR ON THE MARKET. WHEN WE WILL FIND PRODUCTS WHICH WILL COMPETE WITH OURS, THEN WE WILL HAVE COMPETITORS, BUT NOW IS NOT THE CASE. I AM ABSOLUTELY SURE THAT WITH OUR PRICES NOBODY WILL BE ABLE TO COMPETE, ALSO FOR THE NEW TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE DEVELOPED FOR THE E-CATS AND FOR THE PRODUCTION LINE WE ARE MAKING.
I WILL NOT ANSWER TO FURTHER QUESTIONS REGARDING THE MILLIONAIRE AND THE WANNABE COMPETITORS.

Defkalion: So far we have not officially received (through a telephone, letter, fax or e-mail) any such offer published in different sites. If the offer and the “donor” are real, we will accept the challenge, performing a test under the protocol we have announced in our last Press Release (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=926&start=210).
In case this is a real proposal, we will accept an official letter and a proof of donated funds from a prime bank before any such testing.
Also note that our first independent official tests are starting on 24th of February 2012.

Following Andrea Rossi’s refusal of Dick Smith’s $1m test offer, the Australian Businessman and skeptic has now extended that offer to Defkalion. While a cursory check has been made on his identity, care should be taken until it is confirmed by his office. The offer was made in answer to a question in the eCatNews comments section:Dick Smith: No X prize but of course I would be happy to make a similar $1 million offer to Defkalion. It of course will be a waste of time as they are both clearly similar scams. Already Defkalion have announced that there will be delays in their “independent ” tests because the process ” of determining testing dates”. Will be “more time consuming than we thought”.
Ha ha. I could have predicted this delay while more investment capital is raised from the gullible.The independent tests will never happen. If they want to repeat the demo they gave Sterling Allan with a few simple protocols and they get a COP of at least 3 they can have the money. If they do agree they will then delay delay delay . I have seen it all before.
While Rossi’s refusal can be justified (in my opinion) by his claimed plan to mass manufacture the eCat, it will be a little harder to understand Defkalion doing the same. According to the company, it is conducting tests after inviting any credible body to visit and prove the Hyperion for themselves. They further state that the tester will then be free to publish their results.
This means that they have made the strategic decision to prove themselves. Here is a perfect opportunity to do just that. Recently, I have been impressed by DGT’s apparent professionalism, all the time aware that they have shown nothing of substance and certainly a lot less than Andrea Rossi.
If they refuse or obfuscate, I would have to finally agree with others and wonder why.
We need to see the offer in official form and then the future of Defkalion lies in what they do next. I hope they grab the opportunity with both hands.

I have now spoken to Dick Smith and confident as I can be that he and his offer are genuine.
As a skeptic he wears his colours honestly. I remain sceptical too but while I will hold on to hope until it is dashed, he is quite certain that this is a scam. Such a position is honourable and born from 30 years of seeing scam after scam giving off the same signals. He is not a pretend skeptic out to disprove something that is real. Anyone who has followed this site will know that I do not support such behaviour.
The length of the run should be short enough to satisfy Dick’s concern and long enough (and at a high enough COP) to exclude the possibility of any conventional chemical fuel. The idea is not to prove a nuclear process but that the Hyperion has a utility capable of doing the practical job claimed for it.
To satisfy the above, his testers will need to know the minimum volume they can inspect to and be allowed total access outside that black box (including before and after weights).
If that is done under the control of qualified and genuine skeptics then the test can be kept simple and reasonably short. I fully expect the company to carry on with the other tests they have already scheduled as it will give another dimension to our confidence in any successful result.
Dick posted the following in the comments section:You heard it here first,. I have emailed the CEO of Defkalion extending the $1m offer providing a testing protocol can be agreed on. I have stated I only require a six hour test period and I am suspicious of their proposed 96 hour period as no person can remain awake that long! I have said I only require measurements of the input and output power and asked what COP they can achieve. I have also asked what their test input power would be. Obviously the type of power output and gain must be similar to what Rossi claimed.- not low output that is not commercially viable.
I will be away from my office until Tuesday so finalization of an agreement will have to wait until then. Interesting times!! I have also asked the date they would like to do the test.

Not only a scam but also gone boring...
Below is a copy of our open announcement concerning Dick Smith, alsopublished on our website:So far we have not officially received (through atelephone, letter, fax or e-mail) any such offer published in different sites.If the offer and the "donor" are real, we will accept the challenge,performing a test under the protocol we have announced in our last PressRelease (viewtopic.php?f=4&t=926&start=210).
In case this is a real proposal, we willaccept an official letter and a proof of donated funds from a prime bank beforeany such testing. Also note that our first independent official testsare starting on 24th of February 2012. No "donations" or any moneywhere required or offered for these independent tests.
Our online announcement was meant to initiate formal contact from Mr Smith.All subsequent communication was considered to remain private. Our aim hasnever been to gain publicity. Mr Smith apparently wants publicity (as witnessedby publishing our emails and getting others involved). First things first; MrSmith must first speak, discuss and agree with us. Publicity is later Mr Smith.
We declare that we do not have any spokes persons or representatives.All announcements, discussions and agreements are taken only by us.
Mr Smith’s first email to our CEO had no formal introduction, nor any professional courtesy:

My offer to you would be based on this. I only require a 6 hour testwith accurate measurements of the input and output power. Please advisethe input power you would like to test at and the COP you will be ableto demonstrate? I will not be able to do any paperwork until my officeis operating next Tuesday. When is the earliest you would like todo the test. ?

We requested for a Skype conference call with Mr Smith, similar to what he had requested from Mr Rossi. Mr Smith declined our offer. Strangely, when Mr Rossi declined Mr Smith, Mr Smith called Mr Rossi a scam. Should we consider the same of Mr Smith?
We look forward to receiving from Mr Smith (1) an official letter of his offer; (2) proof of dedicated funds from a prime bank for 1 million; and (3) proof of entity (corporate or personal). Upon receipt of the above, we are ready,willing and able to proceed with the challenge.
Our protocol has been accepted by leading world authorities and we are undergoing tests under strict NDAs. Nonetheless, we are open to discuss variations such as a 6 hour test, still being able to prove a COP of over 20. But these are formalities to be discussed in private. Should we proceed, Mr Smith will be bound by NDA. He can receive all the publicity he wants after the test.
