Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
Maybe there is something wrong with coding drivers for the speakers...
Vacation? Creator needs to wait till the 7th day and rest from all the creating that was completed. ;-)
Relax, it's actually all in the last update:
> We should be finished with the software by the first of August
> to begin testing the software and hardware together by the end of August.
So August has been reserved for vacation. Let the Creator rest a bit after all the hard work in the recent months :-)
I have a bad feeling about this. =( I'm with you, Anthony. I almost forgot I backed this as well. I was just thinking, "Hey, isn't there a Kickstarter I backed a while ago that I haven't gotten yet?"
@Manic also from the "creators" last post in the comments "We have confirmed that the Superscreen resolution is 2560x1600", seems oddly worded that they HAVE confirmed vs CAN confirm...who/why would they HAVE to confirm with somebody else on their own product...just seems odd...
Honestly, the lack of updates from the creator has made me almost forget I backed this thing. Hoping for something......anything....soon. Crickets! My confidence level is extremely low.
It means they are playing you/us.
'We are just waiting on feedback from the creator of the actual product'
... actually mean?
Isn't the Kickstarter creator and the creator of the actual product the same???????
There is somerhing very odd here!!!!!!
Just had the following sent to me:
We are just waiting on feedback from the creator of the actual product. We can only update you with the information we receive. There will be an update at the end of this week.
The lack of solid updates and photos is disturbing. According to the "time line" they should be doing internal pilot testing right now. One would think they could snap a couple photos and shoot a video. Something tells me that I might be disputing this charge with my credit card come December. I knew this was a big risk going in though.
Please see the links below. Best evidence to show that this is a fraud and we should get kickstarter to refund us.

Well how lucky for all the backers that they get the superscreen for $200 less than everyone else once they sell this retail. That's a 300% savings, folks. Fell bad for all those people who waited. /sarcasm
Kickstarter needs to start being held accountable. DOJ or FTC needs to get involved.
@Chris I checked out Instagram - assuming they are actually trying to sell this, they certainly didn't post very much information about it, did they?
hold the presses ... they announced on FB they got an instagram ... all is fine ppl they're on instagram now !!
Yeah, not much anyone can do if they do go belly up. People need to petition Congress to make crowd funding companies like kick starter accountable for such projects. They may screen them better if they end up on the refund end of bad project plans.
They really need to provide a SIGNIFICANT update on this project to put my mind at ease now. It's now AUGUST and I know no more about this project than I did when the campaign ended. We have yet to see ANY new demos of the software progress or even a photo of the latest hardware. All we have is a blurry website and Facebook posts about Android tips and old mobile games. Come on!
Is the 17th July the last time that Transcendent Designs made any sort of update?
Who cares if they are updating Facebook. It's all garbage. It's android phone tips and posts about old video games. All noise!
Face the facts kids, you have all been duped. Do you really think that a campaign with a $99 product price point and 50k goal for a 2K High Resolution Premium LED touchscreen display utilizing some magic zero latency bi-directional mirroring technology was ever going to be delivered? You would have had better odds in vegas playing roulette.
During the campaign they were updating every few days. Last update now over a month ago.
The creator is updating facebook regularly - last update on there 3 hours ago, yet on here nothing!!
I also need to change my address as well. If someone can get back to me, it would be much appreciated.
Only thing that helped me about no updates, isvrhat the project manager believes their time is more important than ours.
How do I change my address??
When I get such responses I always now think that this is a standard response where an update is not going to be given.
On 3rd August I got this response from the creator:
"We will be posting one soon!"
isn't this getting a little TOO frequent on indie and kick?its ruining the platforms......
@Dean - I guess my point is there is a lot of information out there (this is a good thing); I worry when you can't find anything at all!
Like I posted, I am hopeful it is a success and not to worried. So no need to go full skip tracer on them.
@Dean Look at Bizapedia - tons of Arizona stuff (different companies, including Transcendent Designs) using the same law office address plus others that look to be related... have no idea what to make of that.
That address is from the Transcendent Designs website. If you search google by the telephone number you get "Foster Capital LLC" in Glendale, AZ also operated by the Brent Morgan. I didn't check his linked in page - nor verified the contact info that all companies must provide the city they are in. (FYI - when tracking down a business contact that is always the best place to start - the contact listed with the city is usually the VP of HR.)
@Dean Kirkpatrick But their Kickstarter info states Santa Monica, CA...
Transcendent Designs, LLC
17470 Pacesetter Way
Scottsdale, AZ 85255
They have provided an update on a monthly basis. So since 7/9 was the last update - based on past timing we should have another update in the next week or so. How much real info it will contain, only Transcendent Designs knows. But I am still hopeful that any issues they have or are having are being resolved. My take isn't negative, my take it is more technical issues and they are working to resolve them, and maybe not having good luck. I am sure they will over come them though.
Good work on the comment made June 7 about the "Press Mentions".
It's been a while since I've hopped in to check on the status of the Super "Galaxy Tab S2" Screen. I originally backed 2, but further research led me to believe this couldn't be done, so I dropped to a $1 pledge to see the progress.
Here's my 2 cents 3 months after funding...
1. The 2 speakers on one side ruins the looks. It's not symmetrical. If you guys are going to put front speakers on (which is an awesome idea) do all 4 speakers.
2. After 3 months and no real pictures? The CGI render doesn't qualify. No new videos of the product working??? We get pictures of USB cables? And they're not even real! It's more CGI.
Lastly, anyone asking for a refund won't get it. You have to file a dispute with your credit card company. Do it soon because most credit card companies have a window of when you can file. I got my refund recently from a POS campaign thru my credit card 2 months after filing.
I'd agree but when I pledge to back something I expect honesty and transparency from the company or persons i'm backing, it's clear that the iOS offering of the superscreen is not mirroring as promised, just an app posing as an ios home screen offering limited functionality outside of the api's on offer from apple. It's for this reason I am requesting a refund.
Found on the Kickstarter basics page:
When a project is successfully funded, the creator is responsible for completing the project and fulfilling each reward. Their fundamental obligation to backers is to finish all the work that was promised. Once a creator has done so, they’ve fulfilled their obligation to their backers.
Notice the fundemental obligation.
All the comments about refunds make me laugh. Don't Kickstart if you want a shopping experience...
I would like a refund, the ios portion of this product is clearly not mirroring the actual os but an app made to look like the os. False advertising and not what we were lead to believe when backing.
Please contact me regarding a refund.
As a photographer would it be possible to camera tether using the superscreen? or is it a something that could be done as an upgrade?
You can still post comments if you have gotten a refund.
Point in case.
Is there any plans whatsoever to make it work with Windows and/or Ubuntu?
I'm little worried because it seems some $1-skeptical backers got a forced refund to prevent them adding comments here.
Hey I backed this, almost forgot about it... Nothing new? Hmmm....
Same scenario as the coolest cooler, we're never getting these screens that's for sure....
This will never see the light of day. Sorry everyone who pledged more than a dollar. Warning signs after warning signs!
@Scott nope 4k 16:9 = 3840 × 2160, so 2560 is about 2,5 K
So on 9 Jul there was this update-- '1. Our first pilot run of hardware is coming off of the assembly lines and we are testing it now!'
Seems 2 wks after 'coming off production line' would be more than sufficient time to grab some pics for us to see..??
time to post screenshots
