A crash course in changing the world.
I own an Ipod which is why seeing the word "POD" on this site http://www.kickstarter.com caught my attention. I briefly scanned the description and decided to support it by donating a dollar. What impressed me most is the idea of carrying renewal energy with me when I'm outside. Renewable energy concepts usually catch my attention since the earth is slowly running out of its natural resources. What people need most nowadays is to find out how to create clean and environmental friendly energy.
"The Tellurex tPOD1 is powered by tea candles commonly available throughout the world which can be made from green, natural, and renewable resources. When placed beneath the Tellurex tPOD1, these inexpensive candles provide the right amount of heat needed for the thermoelectric modules in the tPOD1 to generate around one-quarter watt of power."
The design could still need some more work. But I'm pretty sure once they gathered enough money for its further development the tPOD can become something big. Who knows, we might not need to rely on batteries anymore in the near future.
