Have a question?
I️ have not received my hdmi chip yet. Is there any info on time when they might be coming in?
It's a shame mine has not come yet. It's been over twelve months. I talked to the company, I changed some emails that did not work at all. I am sad to trust so much in crowdfunding, but this type of experience shows that this company CHIP is not ready to really innovate. 144/5000
They should take each case and solve it. Unfortunately I can not make anything, but my money was stolen. This is the truth.
Someone here, who wants to buy my nearly unused pocketCHIP? I'm from Germany and would send to EU countries
Hi. I did not receive anything. Could somebody contact with me, please?
I have had mine for some time now. Finally decided to give it a try. After reflashing it, it worked just fine. It does just what it says. It's a $9 computer, for goodness sake. Haven't signed on as root yet. Maybe someday.
i got this. really is just utter rubbish. forgot to post previously, but it was just not worth the investment
So where is my reward
it has been over a year
Some of these projects have taken so long. I forgot about them. I've backed almost 70 projects and quite a few give you nothing. After a while you start to forget who's honest and who's not.
I never received my reward.
Well, clearly some people's (incl. myself) received all they paid for. Are you sure you contacted them correctly.
Have you guys tried the ahoy email address - a few messages down from here. Contact Next Thing directly NOT through this messaging mechanism. Lots of folks (including me) have had both their kickstarter rewards and subsequent purchases provided by Next Thing so its not a scam. Yes the project was late - but that is the nature of kickstarter projects - Chase them directly.
I think we should take legal action and sue this company
Can I get my money back??
I agree. I haven't heard from this group in 6 months. Are they still around?
I never received anything. i actually forgot about this project because there were no updates. i'm confused they launched a new product in November of last year, yet did deliver their first product. Am I correct?
Hi, does anyone know how to better contact them? I backed them all the way back in 2014, got an email asking me to update my address, but past then, no contact, I don't even think I got a confirmation. Nothing. Radio silence. Please help, anyone?
Hi everyone, similar as some of you I did not receive anything. I wrote them email but nobody wrote back! I should got it January 2016.
Jacob Wheadon (from CHIP) sent me the product, but I think he informed the wrong address. He's e-mail is not working anymore.
The message I got from de delivery service: "Not Delivered - Addressee not present- Message left"
How can we solve it?
promised delivery by may 2016, it is now december and still NOTHING--no product, all emails have been ignored - looks like a scam
We've tried to message some of you individually, but if you need customer service help, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. Kickstarter messages have been unreliable so we're asking everyone to email our helpdesk there.
I still haven't received my chip and haven't heard back from kickstarter or chip. I've emailed and no response.
My chip failed to work can you guys help me out ?
how can I get my money back?
It's almost 2017 and I still haven't received my CHIP.
Plz send me the tracking number.
For all those having a problem contacting Next Thing via e-mail, please make sure you're sending to: ahoyahoy@nextthing.CO (note that is not a mis-spelling, their domain is a .CO domain *not* a .COM domain). This error appears at least twice in recent backer comments.
we pledged in JUNE of 2015 -- we have confirmed our address, we have sent several emails but we have not received anything, not even a response to any of our emails. It's starting to look like fraud
We've tried to message some of you individually, but if you still don't have your reward, it's probably because we need you to confirm/update your address at track.getchip.com. If that doesn't work, please contact us via email@example.com. Kickstarter messages have been unreliable so we're asking everyone to email our helpdesk there.
My chips are on the way, got tracking info.
So what is the deal? There hasn't been an update for MONTHS and now all of the sudden there is press on The Verge about these things. How about you guys deliver to your backers before you start reaching out to the press?
I have pretty much given up on this. Despite numerous attempts using all the techniques recommended on the blogs it cannot connect to any wifi network. So I will be tossing it. This pretty much does it for me with technical Kickstarter projects. I'll focused on artistic (music, video) moving forward.
Sorry I meant firstname.lastname@example.org
Have you tried ahoyahoy.nextthing.com?
I've had no updates since June - my pledge was in May of last year, and even the delayed shipping schedule has long come and gone- and no response to any of my emails. The shipping site fails to send the password reset to my account. Attempted contact with nextthing.co is not returned. I believe that I've wasted my money here.
Who do I contact for my chip?
I received my 2 chip as expected
I can vouch, it is not a scam I got my PocketCHIP a while ago, keep contacting them, they will straighten it out
+1 on no CHIP received yet. Looks like a scam now.
Still waiting for my Chip. I was backer number 8,067. I have sent several messages. What is going on? When will I get this product?
Still waiting for my product. I have left numerous messages through Kickstarter. Please fulfill your end or issue refunds. Starting to feel swindled out of my money.
My order hasn't arrived yet. Please confirm.
Haven't received anything yet.
still haven't received mine..
I did submit address verification.
Pledged $93 for
All of the things!
PocketC.H.I.P. (includes one C.H.I.P.) + additional C.H.I.P. + VGA Adapter + HDMI Adapter + Battery
I messaged the project organizers about my apparently vanished order, and their robot told me about bbs.nextthing.co, which seems to be the real place to get info. Good luck.
I'm still waiting for my chip e hdmi adapter.
haven't got it yet
Was I supposed to receive my chips by now?
I am still waiting for my chip and controller. No update, not messages on ship date .... WHATS GOING ON :(
