      @SaltyBrains
      Yeah, same here. The biggest problem this project had was the communication. Weekly, short, constuctive updates would have made everything easier for everybody involved in this.
      Well here's to 2015 and the wave of lawsuits against the creator's trolls.

      Well, I have my bear but no android phone. Playing around with a raspberry pi and audio-over-bluetooth. When i'm finished "teddy" can use their web api and switch on my lights.

      I just want my bear. Not to hear rantings about stuff that isn't important to me as a backer. When do I get my bear capable of working with iOS. This is possibly the worst kickstarter I've ever been involved with, and I've backed some absolute stinkers.

      @Christian yeah, I don't want a refund - i take all kickstarter projects as a gamble and i stand by my decision for having handed over my money, thats fair enough, successful or not i knew the risks when i did it!

      What i don't like are the constant useless updates and rants and the abusive threats and spam (let alone the strange (possibly illegal) behaviour of threatening to use (and public publishing!) our personal information against us), i certainly did not pay for that! :)

      @SaltyBrains
      Maybe he'll refund you ;)
      I have to say, knowing that the creator of this project has my personal information is kind of upsetting. You never know who he's trying to doxx the next time for being a critic or being unsatisfied.

    5. Chris Southam on

      Tempted to start trolling you and the project. Seems to be the only way you respond.
      If you answered the big questions then perhaps there wouldn't be so many negative messages.
      Sort it out Ashley, give us some firm answers on progress, specifically iOS.

      i have received another Message from Ashley, this time i perceive it as threatening (pasted below);

      "
      Supertoy Robotics
      I feel sorry for you.

      I will be in touch."

      i dont know what this is about, i have never attempted to communicate with Ashley or Supertoy Robotics.

      This is ridiculous.

    7. Chris Osborne on

      I can always look forward to a good laugh when I read these updates.

      Don't worry if you haven't received your bear. It will randomly stop talking, the batteries last like half an hour, the stereo input isn't grounded properly so it crackles and the software is terrible.

      If I get some free time, I may adapt my "learning" chat bot for an audio output. I'll post it in the google play store since I'll probably be "banned" from commenting after giving real feedback on the quality of the bear.

      Not sure if you can call people whom have paid you money for a product in turn you HAVE not delivered on, doesn't work at sold, bait and switched Trolls....?!? I am perplexed at the high and mighty stance you take but will not only go to the same level but worse? Come on Ashley wake up to your self.... People are pissed you have taken money off them and done nothing but post dribble on here. you seriously believe you can sue people and get them behind bars for cracking it with you for asking for a product you sold them after you went onto a public forum and asked for money and their support.....

      Look back on all your updates, how many and relevant to the product or project? How many people here are asking for what you promised...? Where's the iOS app? Where the limited edition bears?

      You have clearly sold something you haven't delivered and everyone has a right to be pissed at you for the short comings, if you had been honest from the start and through out and not posted random crap maybe you would get more support. You are your own worst enemy.

      If it was not the fact I am so busy programming, I would take action now. But next year I guarantee it starts. It starts with the press name and shame those people, and the companies they work, if they work for themselves I will contact their clients. Believe me justice will be done.

      Read this article.

      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-29678989

      " if you troll you risk being behind bars for two years "

      I have made it very clear I will take legal action against all trolls. I have a long memory, if it takes me 1 year 10 years 20 years I will seek justice and compensation.

      They have joined my fight against TROLLS.

      Specifically.

      Daniel XXXXX. Otherwise know as Lord Daniel XXXXX. (I EDITED OUT THE NAME)

      (HE ALSO PROCEEDED TO LINK THIS CUSTOMERS GOOGLE+ ACCOUNT PAGE)

      Is in charge of anti troll behavior.

      His company with Daniel help will eliminate Trolls.

      A big thank you to Redtoo!

      A company willing to stand up and be counted.

      ---------------------------------------------------------------------

      Let me just say, this type of behavior is unacceptable (but, unfortunately expected) from the project backer, who has access to our personal information and has agreed to not abuse as per his Kickstarter terms and conditions.. He has repeatedly threatened those who backed his project with legal actions, stalking, public humiliation, etc.. This is not the first time he has exposed personal information of a client publicly..

      Ashley, I received my bear.. Honestly, I was shocked when it showed up.. The product works, barely, and I've yet to really "RAIL" on you (you would call this being a troll).. But seriously, grow up and focus on your work!! As per usual, I will be reporting the offending actions of this project owner.

      This is GREAT news. Well Done Ashley for kicking back against the hated trolls while you have struggled to satisfy your customers and produce a cutting edge premium product.

      Nice editing of the update after it got sent out to the backers. Like the editing of your comment on the google play store.
      Please stop doing things like that and be professional. Your project had so much potential.

    17. Simon Burfield on

      Your starting to annoy me, and this is probably why you get trolled, I have sent you 3 emails that you have ignored, but you have time to send out pointless updates.

      There must be a company out there that can help you with your health issues
