i hate to bash other companies but taking 16k of hobbiest's money is not cool in my books

Based on the comments, you can come to your own conclusion about this company.

All I can say I hope he does the right thing and either has a product or gives everyone a refund.

i don't see a refund happening and the lack of an update says that perhaps the project is dead (maybe all the money got sunk into it)...i don't even really care that much about the coin i put in. It was enough that i was supposed to get a unit myself but i doubt i'd have the time to hook it up anyways LOL....It seemed like a laudible project to support and I still think it is....Just not with these guys......

Sounds like a very disappointing situation indeed. Unfortunate to think that someone might just cut contact after being funded. I suppose this is a reality of kickstarter, but not one I hear of frequently. Definitely shame that someone might walk away with all that money, or at least not explain what happened.

This does not sound good at all...not the product...the lack of updates/communications. I sure hope someone hears from him soon and he answers all questions.

Theres been a few kick starter scams like this and it can be really crushing when you realize its a scam, i dont think this guy is coming back and even if he does this is such a blow to his company's and his own reputation
