This Kickstarter project is an opportunity to help a company create a magic cooking pot. Apparently it’s not really magic, but the result is awesome!
Based on two thermoelectric effects, the Seebeck effect and the Peltier effect, you can use the heat from your campfire or other heat source to generate electricity. That means you can light your lantern or mp3 player as you cook your noodles, or a resident of a remote village can charge a cellphone without the need for batteries.
The 10-watt model currently being offered is enough to charge a tablet device, and the page indicates there is even a 15-watt PowerPot in the works!
If you’re still as skeptical as I was when I first saw this, have a good read of their How It Works page, and all supporting links.
