      Well they’re ex-IDEO and the design community is small. They’ll have this following them and it’ll come back to bite their butts plenty in the future. That they couldn’t deliver is fine, but yeah they could have unwound it in a way that the backers got something... eg an open source design.

      Bert - You are right, it is, but I hope one day the creators look back and feel guilt with each and every comment on here.

      Interesting comments from former investors but if you read any of my earlier posts you would know this project was dead years ago,.
      The people who solicited kickstarter funding were dishonest and disappeared it is too bad they can not be held responsible for their incompetence.

      TO ALL THOSE REQUESTING A REFUND:

      Don't waste your time - cut your losses and move on - we were all screwed by these muppets.
      Kickstarter is not going to do anything, and these idiots at CST claim they've burned through all the money, so cannot refund anything.
      Take it as a lesson to be more cautious in the future - lesson learnt!

      Shame on David and Jerry. Shame you did not listen to your original backers, us kickstarter backers. Shame on hiding behind a firm to sell of any remaining assets for their own profit. Shame on you for keeping us in the dark so often. Shame on not even making the designs etc open source. Shame on even trying to sell these and the patent to us. Shame, shame!

    22. Rich Stokes on May 20, 2017

      I do like the idea of this being a forum of sorts in the future. Any idea how long Kickstarter keeps these 'dead' pages going?

    23. Jon on May 19, 2017

      1st they steal our money and then they sell the equipment where the funds go into a trust where fees are paid to who knows who or a kickback now they want us or someone to buy their patent fool me once but twice shame on me never again. fuk kickstarter

      Such a sad thing that this project didn't make it to reality and I think the creators are to be blamed to a degree.

      Irrelevant to what happens before, I think there is still a chance to make this happen but not by hoping for the creators to make it but by teaming up and making it as a group.
      The information disclosed so far by the creators is almost all one would need to make the watch.
      Things required:
      Steel Band:
      All it needs is a 3d drawing and a metal cuff bracelet manufacturer in China.( I have done this before so I know how easy this is)
      Battery:
      We know exactly what battery they used as they listed it in one of their updates. I googled it and it is widely available for the public.
      Microcontroller:
      They listed this as well in one of their updates. Again google brought it up and is also available to the public.
      Screen:
      The screen is a simple paper thin flexible e-ink display for which there are countless manufacturers in China and are easily available online.
      Programming the PCB:
      This is the only thing I wouldn't know how to do myself. but surely there are people among the backers who could.

      I know I make it sound easier than it is, but it could be done with some work.
      It is not a one man job but a team of people could pull it off...

      Creating the band is a very easy process and finding a cuff bracelet manufacturer in China is very easy.

      Hey all! Just your regular reminder that we all got scammed, and that I love each and every one of you and know you'll do great things in life. :)

      The CST-01 guys? Yeah, whatever, screw them. Hopefully they fail at everything forever haha...

      The way I see it, we each paid ~$129 to be a member of a super-exclusive sub-forum. Hopefully we're all still posting in here in 20 years, with stories of new families, houses, boats... yeah... <3

    31. Neil Mullett on March 23, 2017

      lol, first time I've logged into Kickstarter in a couple of years....not expecting to find people STILL commenting on this dead scam. TIME to move on peeps. Live and learn.

Anyways, I just wanted to wish you the worst of luck in every single business endeavor you ever sink your lying, dirty paws into. I hope the hundred dollar steak you bought with my investment tasted delicious. Your parents must be super proud.

    33. Topher on March 2, 2017

      I love checking in on the tumbleweeds here every so often. It's clear nothing here will ever happen. What money they received is gone, their presence is nil, and now we see a steady trickle of grumbles (like this) from now until the end of....time.

      Well done, guys! Top notch theft!

      Some great entrepreneurs here. Saw an opportunity and took it. Can't fault them for that. If KS allows fraud and theft to occur, it's really KS' fault.

    36. Johannes on February 21, 2017

      As a Baker from Hour 0 of this project, I just want to know everybody to know that I am both disappointed in them as well as in Kickstarter. That is also the reason why this was the first and last time I ever did crowdsourcing on this platform.
      However, I couldn't fill out the legal forms to file a lawsuite due to missing information about payment and so on, that said I am really no help.
      To all others who feel the same way: My money gone, but I take it as a reminder to be more careful about those things, as I never thought we could be tricked that hard.

      So here we are some 90 - 180 days later. How did the liquidation process go? As the anger slowly but surely fades the disappointment in eyeryone involved with this project grows. From Kickstarter to the project creators to the people running the so called CST Creditors Trust. The only one i trust is the higher being - lets call it fate - that will do the justice ... as no one of the aforementioned human beings will stand their ground. Thank you for a lesson learned.

    49. J S on October 24, 2016

      There is no stock Lars. They supposedly spent the money for thousands of parts but cant even show a picture of them.
      If there are no parts then where is the money?
      I have a pretty good idea.
