Poormans Pod * 10
    #1303334 - 02/12/03 06:34 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)



Put two airstones in a rubbermade size of your choosing.    hook up your hoses and put in the geo-lite or hydroton ( lava rock will work, it is much cheeper but weighs a ton). I ran them threw the side.  I added the geolite 4 inches deep and water till it was an inch from the top    . Plug in hoses    ad cakes and go.  
  I hope this helps someone.  :grin:

I might have to close this post and delete the contents.
The hydra-pod is patented.
I will come back with a decision from the Admin.
I won't have Myco-tek threatening to sue the Shroomery over this post.

would you really need that much air? i don't know what the air diffuser unit looks like in the more expensive kind but wouldn't just a single port, split be a sufficent amount of airflow? i own an aqurium so i know there's a lot of air to be had by two ports.. course you can double your "air pumped geo-lite chamber" to accomodate twice as many cakes.. ohhh... maybe i'll give it a go next time.. good idea :smile: thanks for bringing it to everyone's attention that you need not spend 100 dollars for a setup like this.

the bubbling air also helps increase the wicking action of the geolite to the cakes.

if fully understand your concern and am not arguing, I really don't care what mods do with threads but let me get this straight... i make a device and patent it, you in turn figure out how to make a similar device and simoply tell people how to make and I have no substantial evidence you used this device or anyone else built if from your plans. Now, I can sue you?!?!? Please tell me the only "wrong" part of this was referring to the almighty name of this product...

hi..bro

Using the name and a picture of the Hydra-pod was why I was concerned...notice that they have been edited out.
Myco-tek has threatened people in the past.

Basically he owns the patent on hydroponic mushroom devices....as I understand it.

Yes you can make your own.
No you can't sell them for profit.
I have seen several people make, sell and trade simular products....they were always threatened with a lawsuit.

I really don't care myself....I do care about the Shroomery!

But you have to understand that Myco-tek is a Sponsor.
If someone makes their own pod...they probably shouldn't flaunt it and tell others how to make it...it's sorta a slap in the face to a Sponsor that helps pay for us being here...if you catch my drift.

I'll leave the thread open....we have been talking about this in the Mod forum.

I guess I'll end with this...if you designed a product, marketed it, advertised it and you feed your family from it's sale's...you might feel differently.

does this apply if someone was to build one that used a total different concept?
That had nothing incommon to there product.
I don't see how they could if u based it's design differently.
And used nothing that a pod uses.

So are you saying even if someone invented something different but for the same reason they could sue them?

I made one just like you said one year ago but i thought about doing things even more simple and modified it, no need for an extra tub. Just add one more inch of geolite and another inch of water, then submerge the fish tank heater into the geolite :tongue:. In fact i use one inch of geolite at bottom and two inches of perlite on top, i like perlite humidification much more than geolite when using this tubs.

I doubt that patent would stand up to a stiff breeze in court.

In paticular I think he's clear as far as the design of the terrarium he has shown here.

I'm not familiar enough on the specifics of the Hydra-Pod design, to know how similar his desingn is, but I feel confident that there is enough prior art that his design would not violate any valid patent.

Excessive assosiation of his device with the Hydra-Pod could be pushing his luck on Trademark laws. I doubt he's anywhere near doing that at this point.

I agree B_H. I'm not a legal expert or anyhing, but I think there would be little, if anything, Myco-Tek could do to. Now if Magash started marketing it as a Hydro-Pod or something like that, yes. However, from what I have seen, the Hydro-Pod is hardly a revolututionary design.

Ok I'm not trying to make a cent from putting hardware parts together and selling them for hundreds of dollars. I'm telling people how to do it theirselfs. With the people on this site I'm sure most of them already knew how to do it. I may have just reminded them the idea was there. You know the old oh shit I forgot about that thing.

As far as being sued "come and get me". The idea I posted is just simular,if you could sue for such a stupid thing Ford would have sued GM and every other car maker out there.

I am a member of the shroomery though and will remove the post if it is wished.
