      This post I am writing is hilarious disturbing to me because I actually forgot about this Kickstarter project. I backed this in the very beginning (and choose a tier much higher than a basic). Is there a release date yet? =/

      no one.

      KS updates regurgitates the same information.

      communication is rudimentary, official forum is dead, arrogant reluctance to answer questions, BANs flies everywhere, and FB spliting into about three or four other groups due to the toxicity of admins and the emotional negative tuning of the dev team. Successful project.

      Hey and be respectful and considerate !!

      Who's surprised that that deadline for documentation was blown through?

      Still, to offset the money I used to back this project, I finally got a refund from the STEM System Kickstarter! And after just five years of updates on how there was this small but important issue with the plastics that was totally going to be fixed by the next update and it was due to ship any day now...

      I really am impressed as to how much work you guys are putting into the Next, talk about dedication … you have gone way past dedication, it really is impressive :)

      Thanks again for the care to all involved (hardware, software, support, documentation, etc.) I am particularly pleased to learn the news Phil went deeper for the case and the mold will be adapted. This kind of attention brings me more confidence how the end design is well considered. I am proud of you guys

      Day by day the project improves. It touches excellence. I never imagined that a private project would surpass a commercial project in quality. There are people who are giving us their time and effort. They have taken responsibility for the project seriously and have not left with the money, as in other unfortunate projects.
      Although I am anxious to have the Next, it is preferable to wait. Can you improve the unbeatable? Yes they can. They know. They are doing it. Incredible solutions and beauty in the design. They are making a jewel. Thanks for the effort. Thanks for the info. Thanks for the professionalism. I'll know how to wait ... every new update does not disappoint ... it surprises us!

      Día a día el proyecto mejora. Roza la excelencia. Nunca imaginé que un proyecto privado superase en calidad a un proyecto comercial. Hay personas que nos están regalando su tiempo y su esfuerzo. Se han responsabilizado con seriedad del proyecto y no se han largado con el dinero, como en otros desafortunados proyectos.
      Aunque tengo ansia por tener el Next, es preferible esperar. ¿Se puede mejorar lo inmejorable? Sí, ellos pueden. Ellos saben. Ellos lo están haciendo. Soluciones increíbles y belleza en el diseño. Ellos están fabricando una joya. Gracias por el esfuerzo. Gracias por la información. Gracias por la profesionalidad. Sabré esperar… cada nueva actualización no defrauda… ¡nos sorprende!
