New Mobile App for Custom Maps Looking For a KickStart

Mapocosm has just released Map Explorer, a mobile app for exploring custom maps. Using Google My Places or other tools that generate KML files, users generate custom maps that can be shared with Map Explorer, including associated descriptions, photos, and links. A full set of location-based services is integrated into the map browsing experience. Interested to have your custom maps published as a mobile app?

Kickstart this! Tellurex tPOD1 generator powered by a five-cent tea candle!

You gotta love some of the brilliant, green ideas that are being KickStarted these days… case in point, how about this portable, handy charging device powered by candle and can charge your smartphone! Enter the  Tellurex tPOD1™ (Patent Pending), a small soup can-sized power-on-demand packable generator powered by a five-cent tea candle. It’s a one-minute, go-anwhere thermoelectric miracle that will light up in a blackout, illuminate your camp table or put a critical limited rescue recharge on a dead smartphone.

The company also has a gadget (Tellurex tPOD5) that can power up and charge your device all powered by a lamp fueled with lamp fuel… nice!
