      Thanks for all the hard work! I really don't get how all these other people can be so vindictive. What you are attempting is incredibly ambitious for any individual. I'm just glad to see even a fraction of the vision of Teddy from A.I. come to life. A kickstarter should always be considered an investment and not a purchase, and sometimes these things just take longer that we hope or expect. How anyone can get that upset over a child's toy I will never understand. It's not as though you've run off with anybody's life savings or anything. I'm sure he's put a lot more of his own money into this project than any individual backer.

      Just calm down people, can't you see he's trying his best?

      Good things come to those who wait, glad it finally all came together Ashley!
      Looking forward to the toy and to future software updates, I do hope Mr Fry is still on board!

      It's nice to see an update with progress. All this "trolling" has to be ignored if you're truly coming through with your promises. Best response is to prove the naysayers wrong. I too was one of them not believing this would come through yet I still kept hope. Keep on your quest and prove everyone wrong.

      Though a more specific update would also be appreciated.

      Nice to see an actual pic of the bear(s), I think the title of this update is spot on, lets see some more bear content, and less irrelevant stuff please :)

      I'm also looking forward to seeing the bear, my fingers are crossed that it really is on the way this time.....

      Thank you, your support means a lot to me.

      I dont ask for pity.

      I am passionate about the Internet, its possibly the best invention of the 21st century.

      It gives people a voice, a voice that can change corrupt Governments to connecting with friends and family anywhere in the world.

      But like any powerful force of good it can be used for bad, and trolling is one of them. Its bad enough on Kickstarter but when people start posting OUTSIDE Kickstarter I draw the line.

      Its bad enough this happens to a 47 year old man, what mental effect does this have on a 17 or 7 year old child?

      It also takes up time that I need to focus elsewhere, so please forgive me if I am not communicating enough.

      “Seldom, if ever, do I pause to answer criticism of my work and ideas. If I sought to answer all of the criticisms that cross my desk…I would have no time for constructive work.”
      Martin Luther King, Jr.

      People say grow a second skin, toughen up, dont listen to them, but you see this is new to me, I am not some multimillionaire film star with several homes, and can pop over to South of France for a break from the critics.

      I am an ordinary guy. A poor ordinary guy. I have put in 10's thousands of pounds into Emote Robotics to deliver on my promises with Kickstarter. I have gone seriously into debt. I spend EVERY DAY working to make it happen.

      Going back to power of the Internet, a wonderful example is Kickstarter. Without them this would be but a dream, but it can also be abused. I know companies who have gone on Kickstarter asking for money to develop a product and its waiting in the warehouse to be delivered!!! I know companies that within 24 hours have reached their funding goal, who are backed by millions of dollars from venture capitalists. Go figure.

      I am one of the few genuine ones, people dont realise because I priced the toy so low $60 and my ex-partner included free shipping!!? its practically AT COST. Little profit. The factory did not get it right until December! they then went into manufacturing which coincided with the Chinese New Year so the teddy bears were not made until February. I have had to write the software from scratch over the past 6 months with my own money, I have had to cash in my sons savings, borrow from family and friends. Believe me nobody knows the sacrifices I have made.

      I give you my word I will deliver on everything I promised in the Kickstarter, next month Supertoy is being shipped from China to your home! the beta app is up on Google Play Store and soon there will be an IOS version.

      Its now starting to take off. This is one of the comments from the Google play store.

      Best talking app ever! I give it 5 stars because I can see this app becoming a new breakthrough in artificial intelligence. I got it in my BMW connected to my radio and people are speechless when they hear the car talking back to me. I can't wait for the updates.

      I have investor interest of 100's thousands of pounds, a large blue chip technology company has approached me (sorry its not Google), and we are going to be on a major technology television show this Christmas (sorry cant say just wait till December :)

      I have formed the best team internationally of programmers and developers a ceo could dream of. These guys have worked as a labor of LOVE for FREE. Thats how much they believe in what we are doing. I am extremely proud of them.

      Next month I will post an update to the app on Google store that will be mind blowing! I cant wait. Thanks to them. This is not my success its theirs.

      So to my critics and enemies I have this to say.

      BIG UP THE BEAR

      One thing I forgot to mention.

      AFTER I ship the bears from China to Kickstarters.

      Then it goes on sale on my website.

      www.emoterobotics.com

      $100 (£60) excluding shipping.

      So Kickstarters got it for half price.

      Secondly, I do take trolls seriously, especially when it goes outside Kickstarter.

      Please note I am doing all this as a personal venture, delivering on my promises for Kickstarter.

      It has nothing to do with my new company Emote Robotics.

      If any troll thinks otherwise they will get a letter from my lawyer in the next 2 weeks.

      Damages for emotional stress, and loss of earnings etc.

      I have given an amnesty.

      Please post constructive criticism.

      Or I hope something nice.

      For those who have an Android device (sorry IOS coming very soon).

      Then please try the BETA App.

      https://play.google.com/store/apps/details…

      If you think its a good start then please post something nice :)

      I really would appreciate it, THANK YOU.

      I need all the help I can get to turn this round and prove to people I will make it right.

      I will deliver on ALL my promises.

      I am so sorry its taking a time.

      But we will get there!!!!

      BIG UP THE BEAR!

      I know I have made mistakes.

      I could write a book how not to do a Kickstarter.

      But its now more than ever I need your support.

      Please post your honest feelings on Kickstarter, I must counter the trolls.

      Don't worry, I will take care of them, legal letters sending out next week.

      Believe me I will sort out the bullies.

      Lets gang up on the bullies.

      You see their cowards, and together we are strong.

      So please do not be afraid, add your voice of support, lets be strong together.

      I need your support now.

      Good news.

      I raised a business loan of $100K (£60K) so can start the business properly and deliver on all my promises.

      I am also meeting angel investors next week.

      The teddy bears will be shipped from China next month!!!! you will get yours in September :)

      Teddy is going places, next week handing over a bear to the Gadget Man, the television show in the UK, their doing a xmas special and teddy is in it!!

      I have been approached by Intel (the chip maker), also Korea TV shopping all very positive!

      Things are now at last starting to look like their taking off.

      If you have an android device.

      Then please try the BETA App.

      British can pull through.

      When our back is against the wall.

      We find courage where others say defeat.

      Please help me.

      Still please believe in me.

      I WILL DELIVER

      and you ain't seen nothing yet!

      Can we see an update with a demo of bear speech and software?

      could everybody PLEASE go to the project's home page, and hit 'report to kickstarter' at the bottom ?

      maybe if we ALL do it they will listen. finally.

      make sure to point out;
      1. that he is abusive and threatening (this is illegal).
      2. that he is spamming continually and regularly.
      3. that KS has received hundreds of such reports and has so far done nothing

      that should get their attention, i hope.

      Of course you thank Kickstarter first.

      Having a platform available for you to deceive and defraud, spam and rant, threaten and offend, concocting an unrelenting cycle of excuses while not responding to direct emails that costs you nothing must be invaluable.

      We, the 1,226 backers who have had over £68k syphoned, should thank Kickstarter for personifying, at best, modern day business professional incompetence.

      Im hoping your latest banal and inane video, a vignette from Les Miserables, is not a premonition of 19 years in jail for theft - before any redemption can occur.
