      Mr. kernot,

      Some backers received rewards which didn’t work. A few reported receiving functional rewards which malfunctioned in many cases. Even those who did get the thing to work have now found that the web service it depends on for password service has changed and so all WiReboots are now orphaned and useless.

      Did not work. I could never get it to function as intended. By a Wemo switch and use IFTTT instead.

      Mr. Sedam says, “do something...”

      Pray tell us just WHAT do you want Kickstarter to do?

      Fart in his general direction?

      Kickstarter has no more leverage in this matter than you or I do. Mr. Wen hasn’t even logged in to Kickstarter in about six months. Any fix Kickstarter may have (from IP address) on his general direction is out-dated.

      You are absolutely correct and I agree that, under the terms of use here, Mr. I Wen owes us a final reckoning about the project and the money. It’s a good theory and a good practice since it is would provide “closure” for everyone. Of the over-one-hundred Kickstarter projects I have backed, a few have apparently failed. In not one of those cases has the creator made a final statement. It’s a good theory, but it just doesn’t happen. Kickstarter gives no deadline for it and, even if they did, they have no carrot — much less any stick — to offer to force it.

      So, what enforcement and what consequence is there?

      Well, it is crowd-funding, so is it not also “crowd enforcement”? It’s up to us to assure that if and when Mr. Wen comes back here to try again, he finds his reputation from this project in the form of his angry backers waiting for him.

      Kickstarter won't do anything. The canadian backers of this project should file a fraud complaint at their corresponding authorities. As a foreigner I have no knowledge of the proceedings.

      I repost here my message dated Nov. 2016. Still awaiting a replacement reboot power cable (the one inserted in between the router's AC adapter and the WiReboot).
      "I am a Kickstarter backer. I was not able to make WiReboot work. Once properly connected, it does not show any activity. The router is briefly powered up only when the reboot power cable (inserted in between the router's AC adapter and WiReboot) is manipulated. Internal wiring seems to be the issue."

      "If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfill rewards...
      they post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned...."

      It's what the rules say. It's a good idea. It's a good theory. I've backed over a hundred Kickstarter projects. A few of them have clearly failed. Not one of them has actually issued the required final reckoning. It's a good theory, but I've never, in reality, seen it happen.

      The creator of this project is a serial failure. He hasn't practiced the final reckoning in his previous projects and so there's no reason to expect one here either.

      Remember, please, that when you agreed to become a Kickstarter backer, you agreed to accept the risk that some projects will fail, that you may not receive any reward or that your reward may be a piece of cattle excrement, that you will lose your money. Well, that risk has come to pass. So, it's time for us to just accept that and move on.

      OK creator, fullfill the requirements for a kickstarter project as written by kickstarter NOW !! (see below)

      If a creator is unable to complete their project and fulfill rewards, they’ve failed to live up to the basic obligations of this agreement. To right this, they must make every reasonable effort to find another way of bringing the project to the best possible conclusion for backers. A creator in this position has only remedied the situation and met their obligations to backers if:

      they post an update that explains what work has been done, how funds were used, and what prevents them from finishing the project as planned;

      they work diligently and in good faith to bring the project to the best possible conclusion in a timeframe that’s communicated to backers;

      they’re able to demonstrate that they’ve used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised;

      they’ve been honest, and have made no material misrepresentations in their communication to backers;

      and

      they offer to return any remaining funds to backers who have not received their reward (in proportion to the amounts pledged),

      or else explain how those funds will be used to complete the project in some alternate form.

      The creator is solely responsible for fulfilling the promises made in their project. If they’re unable to satisfy the terms of this agreement, they may be subject to legal action by backers.

      Looking at the kickstarter history of this creator he should have a gigant flag after his name saying "WARNING, NOT ACCOUNTABLE, STAY AWAY". Kickstarter should seriously consider a qualification tool for backers/investors.

      It's not a fraud. He produced a product... just not a very good one, one that was far inferior to what was originally presented. The project took a bad turn down Feature Creep Lane early on and it was downhill from there. Fulfillment was poorly and incompletely done, but there was some fulfillment. Build quality was poor, but there was a build.

      If you look at his history, Mr. Wen likes to get ideas and play with them for a while, but he never follows through completely. The fun for him is in sketching out ideas and doing the easy part of the development. And when it comes time to get down to actually productizing, well he's lost and so he just washes his hands and walks away.

      It's a shame too because this really is a good idea and a needed thing. I'm contemplating taking it on myself. The trick will be to stay focused. The product does not need temperature sensors or home automation interfaces or goggle logins. Press a configure button on the device and it will create its own Wifi network for a few minutes. Someone using a smartphone can connect to that network using a password literally printed on a label affixed to the device. Then, that person can use an ordinary standard web browser to access a very simple webpage served out of the device. On that page, they enter the name and password for their wifi network. Once that's done, the device closes down its own wifi network and then connects to the wifi it's going to supervise. One every few minutes, it pings on that wifi to see if it's still up. If not, interrupt power to it and reboot. It would be so simple.

      Mr. Watters,

      This is Kickstarter, not Amazon. Here on Kickstarter, you do NOT buy a product, you BACK a project. Very often -- and in this case -- the project is to attempt to create a product and the offered reward if the project is successful is that product. But what you buy when you back a Kickstarter project is NOT the product but the project.

      What you bought when you backed this project was a reasonable attempt to create the product. And what you accepted in writing was that projects have inherent risks. Among the risks you accepted are that the project would be late, that the product would be a pice of junk, and that the project might fail or never be completed. You accepted in writing the possibility that that you might loose your money entirely. When the risks you accepted in writing come to pass, you have nothing to complain about.

      Mr. Wen is a serial failure. If you look at his history, he has a habit of doing just what he did here, of producing less-than-fully-functional products and of disappearing without fully delivering. By the Kickstarter definition, a reasonable attempt, all of his projects have been successful. But his backers aren't very happy. In my opinion, Kickstarter should look at the likes of Mr. Wen and see his repeated and clear pattern and tell him that he is no longer welcome.

      What we, the Kickstarter Backer Community can do is A) do our own due diligence before backing a project by investing the creator's previous projects. I usually do this, but I lapsed in this case and learned a lesson. And B) be the "karma" that Mr. Wen deserves. If and when he starts a new project, get in the comment forum and tell everyone about Mr. Wen's past projects. To do this, you will have to back his new project, so back it for a million dollars... and cancel the pledge the day before the deadline.

    47. Brian Watters on

      Left out in the cold by yet one more fraud via Mr. Wen ! ..how exactly does KickStarter allow this to continue ..it's almost like they are in on it ..oh wait they are ..they get a piece of the action!
