Parts On The Way

Posted by Richard Harmon (Creator)

Hello Kickstarters!


Rich Harmon here with some great news!  The final component that has been holding up completion of the tPOD1 units for shipment is scheduled to ship our factory.  


I had been holding back on posting an update until I had the good news to announce that we were in full scale production.  There has been one troublesome component that has been holding us up (ironically it is the legs that are holding us up).  This has been a long and arduous journey with this first of its kind product, and I am glad to finally announce that the shipments will begin the week of December 10th. 


We have a significant quantity of the product already assembled to the point where we can attach the legs, perform our end of line testing and ship.  The whole team here at Tellurex is “chomping at the bit” to get moving on this.  I must admit that it will be a huge relief to put that first address label on a box and get the product moving.


We greatly appreciate all of our backer’s patience in waiting for the delivery of product and I know that we have had the date slip by a considerable amount.  It was for the best and we are 100% confident in the tPOD1 design.


Look for your tPOD’s to arrive in the weeks following the 10th start date.


Again, thanks to all of you for making this project possible.
