      Thank you to everyone for your continuous support.
      @Chad Sorry to hear that. I am not really familiar with their system but you can put any address for right now. We are going to double check mailing addresses of our backers just before shipping to make sure your rewards go where they suppose to go. Thank you for backing us.

      Trying to back through indiegogo but it won’t accept my address on there. Also what kind of upgrade are you stating for Kickstarter backers?

      Price is the same on Indiegigo ;-)
      Take the "Super Early Bird + Display Kit" for 128$.
      The 147$ Perk is the"Super Early Bird Sleepman Plus", which includes some Extras (Leather Strap Kit and carrying bag).

      I was an Early Bird Backer and added the display when that became available- total pledge $136. The same package is $155 on Indiegogo. Could you please explain the increased price? Thx

      @creator, you could try copying in the CEO to your e-mails:…

    9. cybereye on February 22

      @Ken, I am very sure the creator will post on the update when they are ready. The creator had been posting the update from a cancel project of "Sleepman version 1" while project "Sleepman version 2" is active on Kickstarter. I had been supporter since "Sleepman version 1". Just make sure your kickstarter account is up to date on the email and doesn't go into spam/junk pile.

      Hi any update on the relaunch? Last comment was 9 days ago.. keep us posted please.

    13. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on February 10

      Dear Backers, sorry for the delay in re-launch. We still going back and forth with Kickstarter trying to see what exactly they want us to change. Unfortunately the only answers we are getting are the standard KS templates referring to their rules. No point of communications, no phone numbers, no person to ask questions. It is really hard to fix the problem when you do not understand the problem. It is frustrating but we keep trying. We are hoping to re-launch next week and will keep you posted. Thank you for your support.

    14. cybereye on February 7

      @Wayne Griffiths, My guess is that Kickstarter didn't like the video or the page info that case the Kickstarter to delay approval about Sleepman. I'm sure it coming later than expected. Sure I wanted as soon as I can because I have money to support this project.

      Any word yet on the relaunch?

    19. cybereye on January 27

      @luke, What you said made me thinking of others project that shows real product but has changed a lot to the final end product. I wonder if the creator made "click-on display" as a stretch goal would Kickstarter be 'ok' with that or get the suspension?

    20. Missing avatar

      luke on January 27

      Bit annoyed kick starter suspended a project because of an add-on being shown as a rendered image, despite people knowing full well it's a mock-up of something created through the running of the campaign.

      Meanwhile plenty of projects exists where they show albeit a real object but the end product was never going to look like that and change it completely and take on no feedback, or completely bs scam items that KS approve let alone act upon reports, or dubious creators with involvement in past projects that fell through or whatever else.

      whatever team is involved in approving / suspending projects at KS are slowly turning into a joke of a team.

      Hang in there guys!! Great product and I’m still in!!!! Just say when and I’ll re-back this great project

    22. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on January 25

      Dear Backers. We were lost at first when we got the suspension notification from Kickstarter but now we decided to re-group, listen to your survey suggestions and do the best we can do to bring you the Sleepman you'll love. We just need to work harder, there is no use for us to whine! As we said before the re-launch campaign is already submitted to KS for approval and we will keep you posted on the outcome. And thank you so much for kind words and continuous support!

      Re-launch in a week!
      Posted by Avantechs Inc (Creator)
      Dear Backers!

      We are happy for your support and hope you will repledge when we relaunch. We got a suspension notification from Kickstarter for the use of “photo-like” renderings of the optional display even though they were clearly marked as renderings. We were under the impression if we do not misrepresent renderings for photos, they are OK, and we clearly marked them “renderings” in the footnotes but the Kickstarter letter specifies “no exceptions”!

      The idea of a display came from you, our backers, just 3 weeks ago. We are working hard on the development now and we were upfront that we can’t put together a quality looking prototype this quickly and used the renderings to represent the look of the product you will be getting.

      We've modified the images in question and brought them to standards but were still directed to cancel and re-launch to avoid the suspension.

      The new campaign is already submitted to Kickstarter for approval and will start as soon as the project is approved by their team. We apologize for the inconvenience this misunderstanding might have caused and promise to deliver the best product possible should you decide to support our new campaign!

      Thank you and it is an honor to have such amazing support as we try to bring our dream to life!

      Dear Backer!
      It’s an honor to have you as a supporter! We can’t be more grateful to you but still are going to ask for one more favor! We just got a letter from Kickstarter saying that they might suspend our campaign for using “photo-like” renderings of the optional display which is against their rules that we misunderstood. We were under impression that if we label them as renderings, they are OK, and we did clearly mark them “renderings” in the footnotes but the Kickstarter letter specifies “no exceptions”!
      The idea of a display came from you, our backers, just 3 weeks ago. We are working hard on the development now and were upfront that we can’t put together a quality looking prototype this fast and used the renderings to represent the look of the product you will be getting.
      We’ve decided to cancel and immediately re-launch the campaign to avoid suspension which is acceptable per the Kickstarter letter. Your current pledges will be automatically cancelled ones we cancel the campaign and YOUR CARD WILL NOT BE CHARGED.
      We are asking for a huge favor. Please accept our sincerest apologies and re-pledge after we relaunch. We are very sorry for the inconvenience or misunderstanding this may have caused, and we promise to re-launch soon and include a special free optional equipment for you as the backer of the current campaign.
      We thank you for your continuous support and please let us know your preferences below in order for us to customize your re-launch special,
      The Sleepman Team

      Hello @ Creator,
      If the sleepman is not going to be autonomous from the cell phone, will it work if the cell phone is off or in airplane mode at night. If it does work what functions will/will not work while in airplane mode?

    31. Thomas Canty on January 25

      Hi, @creator There was a mention of Stretch Goals. With a week to go is there time to even put one in place?

    32. cybereye on January 24

      @Ryan, I found a research that has the effect of the cell phone(digital radiotelephone handsets) that affect the sleep. No it not about Blue light exposure.
      Exposure to pulsed high-frequency electromagnetic field during waking affects human sleep EEG-…

    33. cybereye on January 24

      @Ryan, I'm still digging, It not that easy when many papers assume that you are specialists that reading it. It has too many medical terminologies. You really have to hunt it down and break up every medical terminology search to see what it can. I found that it can be used on the hands as well.

    34. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on January 24

      @Ryan: our nervous system directly connects our palm with our brain. To enhance sleep and power relaxation, Sleepman applies the most effective and safe proprietary algorithms utilizing carefully selected finding from advanced and thoroughly tested technologies. It uses fully harmless micro-current impulses that gently encourage your brain to synchronize its activity with the impulses rather than “attack” it with strong acoustic or electromagnetic waves. Although almost imperceptible, such enhancement is highly efficient because your brain adjusts its responses to emitted micro-impulses in accordance with individual rhythms and waveforms of your bio-signals, thus optimizing the health benefits of the Sleepman E-Magnetic Enhancer. It is based on extensive tests and algorithms developed and patented by our partners. We will contact them and reveal as much scientific background to our backers as we allowed. We will also share the links to the independent studies done in this particular area. We will try to do it tomorrow but certainly on Friday.

      I mean there's no research.

    36. Ryan
      on January 24

      Your reference to the literature all showed experiments based on transcranial or transoral stimulation. There's on research on sending electrical simulations via the hand.

    37. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on January 24

      @Cybereye: Yes, thank you!
      @Jonathan Tan:
      Please find the links to some literature, studies, and a short overview of science behind Sleepman and its E-Magnetic Enhancer.
      Magnetic and electrical methods for controlling sleep stages, stimulating relaxation and improving a mood have been known for more than a century and, starting from 1970’s, electromagnetic pulses have also been used for medical therapy. Numerous devices for electromagnetic sleep enhancement and medical treatment of depression, insomnia, sleep apnea and even bone fractures are commercially available and approved by the FDA. Scientific background of electromagnetic sleep and relaxation enhancement has been intensely studied in the US and around the world, and there are literally hundreds of publications on all aspects of electromagnetic impulse stimulation and treatment. Below please find brief list of research papers in respectful scientific journals, and each paper contains numerous references where more details can be found.! - New York Medical College & University of Rochester, USA - Cleveland Clinic & Harvard Medical School, USA - National Institute of Mental Health & National Institute of Neurological Disorder, USA - University of Colorado Health Sciences Center, USA - Johns Hopkins University, USA - University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA - Lerner Research Institute, USA - University of Wisconsin, USA & University of Milan, Italy - University of Zurich & Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Switzerland - University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland - Georg-August University, Germany - Mental Health Center, Denmark… - University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands - Tohoku University School of Medicine, Japan

      Still eagerly awaiting the literature (papers, journals, anything) as you promised a while back. Would really love to know the science - in particular the use of electrical impulses in a 15-minute nap - behind the product better so as to understand how I can apply it in improving my quality of life.

      @Mohammad Ammar: thank you for your pledge and support.
      @Davin: we will compose it this week and post over the weekend. It takes time, the video we presented to the Kickstarter team was about 7 min long.

      Hai I am Early Bird Special Backer which cost $99. I have change my current pledge from $99 to $128 by adding $29 for the optional Screen.

      @creator I pledged for the sleepman at the $119 level and added $29 for the display. So am I right that with shipping added it's all $156??

    46. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on January 20

      @Ryan: Yes, @Cybereye is right. There is not much difference. We've modified connectors to accept the display but the new connectors will be a part of any Sleepman from now on, and Sleepman at any pledge level will be "upgrade ready".
      @Michael Guglielmo Jr: again @Cybereye is right. The 2 electrodes are included in any pledge level. $167 tier is "all inclusive". You do not need to add anything to it unless you would like extra bracelets or more electrodes.
      @Cybereye: many thanks for help!!!!!

    47. cybereye on January 20

      @Ryan, $119 is the same as $99. The $99 had reached the level that can't be offer anymore. So the creator made another deal offer because of the last moment of update where many backers demand the display for Sleepman.
      @Michael Guglielmo Jr, I'm not associated with Avantechs. My answer could be wrong on one of your question. My guess is that the creator may have forgotten added pads in the description. I would bet it does come with 2 pads. The other question that I can point out what is optional Display is. . The optional display have nothing to do with the pads.
      The E-Magnetic Sleep Enhancer (pad) give you a deeper sleep in sleep mode and in powernap mode give boosted your energy (more alert).

      Ok, this may sound stupid but I did the
      $167 or more
      Upgrade Special 1 Slepman Plus
      We recently upgraded Sleepman with an optional display, and are offering this limited promotional pledge level. Free optional Sleep Enhancement attachment and free carrying bag. 1 Sleepman Device with 1 optional Display Kit and 1 optional Executive Leather Strap Kit, your choice of black or white, 2 slap-bracelets, 1 black and 1 white.

      Now my question with this, what is the optional display, and does it come with the pads to put on your hand for the 15-20 minute naps? I just want to make sure I get basically everything it comes with out of it. Also do I need to throw in more to get these items or are they added in already?

    49. Ryan
      on January 20

      What's the difference between early bird special $99 previously and this upgrade special $119?

    50. Avantechs Inc 2-time creator on January 18

      @Michael Pieschl: Thank you for the suggestion. As I said before we can add as a software upgrade. BTW we are going to distribute a survey with that question: what other features and options would you like to see in Sleepman. Please make sure to fill out one.
      @Jensen Soto: Thank you for you pledge, and yes: you would get the display with your Sleepman. To your second question: Sleepman app does not require or use any location services. It does not need to know where you are. Sleepman just tries to help you sleep good, and stop you from doing so while you are behind the wheel. )
