Production Launch

Posted by Richard Harmon (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!

The time is near!  We are officially beginning production on October 24th.  We have boxes and boxes of production parts and they look great.  We will be building up tPOD1 assemblies and preparing for shipments.

The photograph shows the tPOD1 kit in front of one of the assembly cells on the assembly line.  You can see the carry case in this photo.  This is something that has not yet been revealed to Kickstarters.  It is a black canvas bag with the tPOD logo embroidered on it.  The zippered canvas bag is large enough to store all of the pieces supplied in the tPOD1 kits. 

We are really excited to get started and appreciate all of your patience as we have had delays. 

Thanks to all of you for your support, we look forward to the time when you can begin enjoying your tPOD1 product.

      Cool! And i have to say, the combination of the red metal and the dark plastics look GREAT!
      Looks like we will be in for an early Christmas-present this year! :))

      Great! Looking forward to receipt of my tPOD1. BTW, what is the status of the charger? Will we Kickstarter supporters be given first access when it's ready for production? What is the anticipated cost of the charger?
