      I know that making things is hard and I imagine that running a kickstarter campaign is difficult. Its just a bummer to feel scammed ( ironic given the creation). I pledged and never received anything or any updates from communication from the project lead.

      I tried to get in touch with the project owner on SourceForge, with no luck. Still waiting for my delivery, or any news actually...

      If delivering the good represent too much an effort, I would rather like a full refund of my pledge. Thanks.

    8. Jonathan Tomek on August 31, 2013

      There has not been a response to Aurelien and my comments. How do we get in touch with you to get our items? I even gave my info to your staff at defcon and still no word.

    10. Jonathan Tomek on July 18, 2013

      I still have not received my glitch. Can I get confirmation that it was mailed? ($350 leve)

      2+ weeks after leaving a message here and emailing I have yet to hear anything back.

      So after more than 7 months of patiently putting up with this project I have a peice of junk that was Dead On Arrival, no offer of a replacement or a refund!

      Really how hard is it to pull your finger out and bother to reply to a simple email???

      Hmm, was going to try out the Glitch as I tried to read though the instructions and basically see how it works when I came across bad links. They are located at in reference to creating a module. So anyone have that information or where I can get ahold of it. Thanks.

      ...7 months late and Dead On Arrival.

      1) Faulty microSD slot does not hold card. Not crushed like others, just does not allow card to click in to place so am unable to read card.

      2) USB and pin components soldered askew on pic USB host. Pins bent as well which can be fixed... but why waste more time trying to remount USB plug when someone should have checked the parts going out were acceptable to begin with.

      3) 3D printed case doesn't fit. Considering how rough the print is why wouldn't you check to see they actually fit the board?

      Pretty disappointed that after waiting 7 months this is what I have received.

      How long until you can send me a replacement???

    14. dita on June 28, 2013

      Recieved mine today (Czech Rep.), thank you JP! Is it possible to upload the cover design for print?

      Got mine today! Seems pretty solid, no complaints here. :)

    18. Spencer Penaloza on June 21, 2013

      Recieved today, the case was a bit crunched >.< but the glitch survived intact.

      Received mine in PA today, extremely unsatisfied with the complexity of programming it and the design, nothing at all like what it looks like in the video or any of the pictures, I want a refund please.

      Mine came as well. Lost hope there, but he pulled through! Let the hackery begin.

      My glitch showed up today. So there is hope.

      John Holbrook on June 3, 2013

      Holy crap! Does that mean there's hope that we'll actually receive our Glitches?? Should we start placing bets on if/when the next communication will come out or will the hardware just myseriously be delivered with no further info from JP/Ronin?

    35. Jim Thompson on June 3, 2013

      Well, a little progress. has been updated. Click on documentation and there's stuff to download. 4 hours ago he updated the downloads section and it looks like the hardware and software are now available.

      Well done that. I'm off to work but I'm looking forward to digging through this when I get home tonight.

      Joey, I believe the only way to request a refund would be to message him, but that's not looking good.

      Jim, totally agree with you. Even if there isn't a finished product, it would be nice to know what's going on, and awesome if he released the sources and schematics.

      I backed this instead of buying the "USB Rubber Ducky" from Hak5 because I thought I would be helping the community... I guess I'll have to be pickier about what I support in the future. I didn't realize until after the campaign that he has not even backed a project in the past. Oh well...

      I still haven't received product. I hope my money was used to buy something worth while because apparently I will never see anything from it. ANYONE listening out there do not fund this project. Because its a deadend

    38. Jim Thompson on May 25, 2013

      At this point I'd be happy if he just made the board design and software public. At least then the community could take it and run with it.

    39. Spencer Penaloza on May 22, 2013

      Ya I agree with both ya guys (eth3real and joey) . thanks for an update eth3real.

      Joey on May 21, 2013

      thanks eth3real for the update.

      If he doesnt care its kind of a cheap to ruin his name for less than $30,000.

      How do you request a refund?

    41. Missing avatar

      eth3real (deleted) on May 20, 2013

      We all tried to ask him to update more. Some of us even in person at conferences (DerbyCon, Hack3rcon, etc). He either doesn't care or isn't making progress and trying to hide it. I would request a refund, but that request would probably also go unanswered. Zero response to any possible way I can find to contact him.

      5 months late for delivery, and 2 months since the last update, this project is completely and utterly hopeless. This guy is single-handedly ruining the trust I had in Kickstarter. It would be fine if he would even tell us what's going on, or if he can't deliver. Just anything, open up a line of communication.

      What's the status?

    43. Spencer Penaloza on May 15, 2013

      Ya seriously John... Kickstarter started out as a good idea now its turning out to be the internet center of broken promises and shattered wallets.

    44. Evaristo Ramos on May 15, 2013

      I think we all should track him down and use our own version of the glitch to see what he is up to :P

      John Holbrook on May 7, 2013

      Kickstarter needs to start some sort of rating system for campaigns. Questions like: How would you rate communications from the project? Would you support another project from this same person/group? etc etc

    46. Dominick Totaro on May 5, 2013

      5 months late, minimal updates, the hell batman.

    47. Evaristo Ramos on March 31, 2013
