As the science is now slowly emerging, and a technology being developed, Cold Fusion Now will be there to monitor progress. Let us know you like what we’re doing!

Q&A with Ugo Abundo on newly forming Open Power Association

Ugo Abundo is one of the teacher’s at Leopoldo Pirelli Instruction Institute in Roma, Italia that initiated an investigation with students on cold fusion. Watch their activity at

This release came in about a new Association that group is forming to fund research.

1) What are the current projects and activities of the Open Power Association ?

The two readings of the name, “free energy” and “shared control”, are complementary.

No freedom is possible without available energy.
Aim of the Association is therefore to offer mankind the free results of research in new energy field.

Its activities cover the range from simply develop the Hydrobetatron Project (the heir of “Leopoldo Pirelli” Instruction Institute’s Athanor) to reach a synergy with the efforts of all LENR researchers aimed by our same targets.

2) What kind of testing is going on, and what results are being seen ?

We want to proof the reality of “heat excess” by doubtless calorimetric direct measurements. Actually, important results were obtained by comparison methods, and a suitable calorimetric reactor was assembled to reach the final target, direct determination.

We work on two instrumented lines, the first for screening, the second for C.O.P. recording.

Our revolutionary “fluidized bed powder cathode” was asked for Patent on April 2012.

3) What kind of attention and interest is being shown by outside individuals and organizations ?

A large attention is actually growing about us. Since we have designed and assembled the “F-pulsator” (a device to push high frequency pulses into a specially designed reactor), some reserved organizations and a lot of international-level scientists had a contact with us, to analyze their theories or experimentations by our device, according with the “modus operandi” of Open Power Association.

4) What is the funding situation for the Association ?

The Association is basically self-financed by the membership fees, and gets free funds from sustainers and investors.

5) How can interested people get involved in the association ?

We hope to involve more and more people, at first by sustaining our efforts by joining us as a member, then by sharing our results, so involving new interested people.

6) Are you interested in expanding the reach of the Association beyond Italy, and if so, what are your plans to do this ?

We are going to establish a new office in London, from where will organize meetings about the subject, using such a location as a pole for radial diffusion of world-wide free sharing of “science for mankind”.

We thanks for your kind attention to our project, and hope to offer an useful contribution.

LENR-Gen Module needs your vote

George Miley‘s LENUCO company is vying for a chance to speak and “pitch” for funding to develop the LENR-Gen module, this time, from private investment representatives.

LENUCO has previously attempted to access ARPA-E funding at the ARPA-E Energy Innovation Summit.

LENR-Gen modules are, according to Miley, “LENR Power Units [that] use pressurized hydrogen–nickel nanoparticles undergoing low energy nuclear reactions to create a very high energy density heat source configured for co-generation power for home or industrial distributed power.”

Give LENR a hearing – vote NOW!

ARPA-E has failed its claimed mission to support experimental research on new energy, and now forces scientists to get crowdfunding votes. U.S. Energy Secretary Steven Chu recently stepped down, choosing not to serve a second term.

Cold Fusion Now expects ARPA-E Director Arun Majumdar to fund LENR research, or do the same.

THE WAVEMAKER – Upcoming Film Featuring Irving Dardik (Needs Your Vote)

There’s an upcoming film called THE WAVEMAKER which features Dr. Irving Dardik and his Superwave Principle and includes appearances by Martin Fleischmann, Robert Duncan, and Michael McKubre.

The filmmakers are seeking votes to get Indiewires “Project of the Month” which will win them a consultation with the Tribeca Film Institute.

They are only up against 3 other films and voting ends this Friday.

Theory Purports Alternative to Mainstream Science and Medicine Applied to Health, Cold Fusion and Clean Energy

The official press release reads:

New Film The Wave Maker Chronicling Medical Maverick Dr. Irving Dardik’s SuperWave Principle, entering final weeks of Indiegogo Funding Campaign

Theory Purports Alternative to Mainstream Science and Medicine Applied to Health, Cold Fusion and Clean Energy

Indiegogo Extends The Wave Maker’s Funding Campaign to Sept. 28

New York, New York, September 19, 2012 – An Indiegogo funding campaign is entering its final weeks to start post-production of filmmaker Kiira Benzing’s THE WAVE MAKER, a feature documentary about medical maverick and former Olympics physician Dr. Irving Dardik’s quest to assert a paradigm shift in our understanding of the universe and of our own bodies – by making waves. Dardik’s radical SuperWave Principle, wherein the world is made up of “waves waving within waves,” is an alternative to mainstream science and medicine currently being applied to health, cold fusion and clean energy. THE WAVE MAKER follows Dardik as he battles to convince people that his SuperWave Principle is the Theory of Everything.

“There is a lot of science and theory behind Dardik and his SuperWave Principle, but at the end of the day this film is a human story about a man who believes so deeply in his theory and has sacrificed so much for it,” said Benzing. “I genuinely appreciate Dardik’s vision of the universe, and as much as I recognize he hasn’t convinced the scientific establishment to adopt his theory, I firmly believe that his ideas are reason enough to produce this film. I really hope it will open up minds and hearts to a greater discussion about new forms of clean energy and the scientific establishment.”

Benzing and her film team have intensively captured the radical world of Dardik, from his insights on the workings of nature, to his observations of the human body under stress; to mainstream media coverage of his ideas. Benzing interviewed the naysayers, captured the stories of those living with cancer and Parkinson’s that Dardik has inspired, and documented his medical work based in cyclical exercise and circadian rhythms. Benzing also engaged with his paradigm-shifting ideas about matter and the make up of the universe, interviewing a range of prominent physicists who candidly share their views, and captured how Dardik has successfully applied his principles concerning energy expenditure and recovery time (drawn from observing top athletes) to helping diseased bodies self-heal, as well as to cold fusion, to metallurgy and to particle physics.

Funds pledged by contributors to THE WAVE MAKER’s Indiegogo campaign will go toward shooting the final scenes, equipment, hiring editors, converting footage, recording the score and animation. This campaign will receive all of the funds contributed by Friday, Sept. 28 at 11:59PM PT.

Contributors receive perks that range from “Waves of Gratitude” at the $12 level receiving a postcard image from film with a handwritten note from Benzing, to “The Tsunami” at the $7,000 level receiving lunch with Dardik, a visit to the set during final shoot, two tickets to the premiere in New York, a “Special Thanks” credit in film, a hot air balloon ride, a DVD of the final film, an original song by composer Daniel Halle, a silver necklace and a postcard. Also offered are credits for the Associate Producer level at $30,000, the Producer level at $50,000 and Executive Producer level at $100,000. Your name will appear in the credits of the film. These donations are tax-deductible through the film’s 501(c)3 partner, NYFA.

Featured subjects in THE WAVE MAKER include: Martin Fleischmann (Co-Creator of Cold Fusion), Milt Campbell (First African American US Olympic Decathlete Gold and Silver Medalist), Alison Godfrey (CEO LifeWaves International), Dr. Rob Duncan (Vice Chancellor of Research at the University of Missouri), and Dr. Mike McKubre (Electrochemist at SRI).

THE WAVE MAKER is a production of Double Eye Productions. Attached to the production are producer Kim Jackson (“Blue Caprice,” “Children of God,” and “TUB”), cinematographer Alfredo Alcantara (“The View from Bellas Luces,” “An American Promise”) and composer Daniel Halle (ASCAP).
