Does anyone believe they are going to deliver?

I didnt trust this when they ran the campaign, and I still think they are just killing time to run out of the money so they can launch some other campaign to find more suckers. But one of my friends had contributed to this and he somehow still seems optimistic.

People who back this clearly have disposable income, so they are not in the vicious cycle of dumb because poor, and poor because dumb.

Thus everyone who backs it, in fact doesn't invest in technology, but in education. Its a 800$ lesson how to not be dumb with your money.

There's one assuming that every time there are different people spending money on these projects, and not the same ones... :palm:


Here is an idea: let's make a topic on the forum, where EEVBLOG guys will collaborate and come up with some scamy too-good-to-be-true device.
Then we will Kickstart it, backed by a few CAD renders, hot girl and a few jargon buzzwords, and earn a few hundred thousand dollars.
We cant either split the cash or donate it to some educational foundation.

Looks like it is a deliberate scam.

In the second last update they did a mistake in the video, a sign from Amour patisserie which was there in Dec 2014.
And end of July the went from 100% responsive to 100% silent.

More evidence (from the article):
Between the years of 2006 and 2010, Jeff grifted approximately 75 would-be investors to the tune of $500,000. He did this in the form of selling “memberships” [shares] in a company called Armada Systems LLC.
Predictably, nothing ever materialized from Armada Systems LLC and Jeff Batio was subsequently banned from selling securities in the State of Illinois.

In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.
