The sixty-seventh edition of the GeoGearHeads took a little turn
from the Geocaching-focus to talk with Rich Harmon about the
tPod line. The Program
Manager at Tellurex told us
about the Smithsonian's "Design with the Other 90%" and
Pot concept. The
tPod1 was funded through a
Kickstarter Project but is available to purchase and ship now.
The beta version of the
tPod 5 is available now, but Rich shared information about the
redesigned version which they hope to bring to a Kickstarter
project within 6 weeks and deliver about October 2013. He also
talked about their special Battery
Pack designed to be charged by the low, variable voltage of the
tPod1. He also shared that a single teacandle in the tPod1 only
yields about 700mAh – only about half a charge for most common
The Bad Cop also talked about debaere's (formerly interviewed for "CAM Ep. 246: debaere" and now co-hosting "GeoSnippits Reboot") "TB Race Entries Ready" blog post on the GeoGearHeads 2013 Traveler Race. DarrylW4 mentioned being honored by the Michigan Geocaching Organization with their 2013 MiGO Silver Geocoin Award (more information is available in his blog post).
