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 his World 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 smartphones.
