Australian innovation aids relief effort in Nepal

Shelston IP client, Doble Outdoors®, created the world’s first, fully patented solar powered illuminated tent pole that can also recharge phones and USB powered devices. These poles are now being shipped to Nepal to provide shelter, light and telco power as part of the relief effort. It’s a brilliant example of the power of Australian innovation.

The Doble® solar powered tent pole has also been shortlisted by Good Design Australia for the 2015 Good Design Awards. These awards will be announced in Sydney on 29 May.
