      This is as much of a scam as any phishing attempt anywhere can be. Nevertheless, I'm going with the flow and try and retrieve my money that these guys have stolen.

      I have always believed from the beginning that the money was used by Ryan, Megan, and whoever else as their Exit Plan from this godforsaken thing. Either from anything that they had put in with our good friend Joe or as a way to be able to finance their baby-making and go off and have a life of their own outside of sound band. There's no money, there never was money, there's no development and there never will be development. This is a fucking joke!

      Joe, Thiel, in the spirit of Christmas and starting the New Year off on a good footing, how about this?

      If between now and January 5, 2018 you publicly acknowledge here on KickStarter by way of a project update that despite your best efforts and intentions, you & Hybra are unable to meet and fulfill the terms and conditions of the SoundBand project, I promise in return not to pursue you for the return of any money that would be owed to me as a result of such a disclosure and going forward to completely cease making public comments on this site and elsewhere disparaging you and HAT inc.

      I cannot speak for everyone else who like me is waiting for a resolution to this debacle, but I suspect that you coming clean and acknowledging the obvious will will go a long way to allowing most to chalk this project up to experience and to move on.

      I invoke my right to call Hybra Advance Technology & Joe Thiel lying P.O.S.
      Hybra for being deceptive from the very listing of this project on KickStarter. Despite later claims of not fully appreciating the complexities to fulfill their promises to backers, Hybra lied, obfuscated and announced the very first delivery delay within hours of the funding campaign closing.

      Even giving Joe Thiel the benefit of the doubt and assuming a genuine desire to ride a white horse to the rescue and produce the soundband - come on Joe, at some point between then and now, you have come to realize that this venture like others you have been associated with is nothing more than "pie in the sky" and will never be feasible to produce. Rather than say so and open yourself to requests to return the $547,000, or the need to declare bankruptcy to get out from under your financial obligations to backers, you have chosen to make even more spurious sporadic promises via fake updates that you know not to be true. Unable to produce the product and unable to admit failure, this is destined to be the longest running KS project in a state of limbo, ever!

      Clearly, insult after injury with no terminal resolution in sight.

      It is unfortunate that lack of support or communication to those who put up their money to support your project has been so dreadful. Yes this was a gamble for backers, but the way it has been handled will only hurt future developers, as it has certainly burned everyone who enthusiastically supported you, and makes us all think twice about supporting anyone’s future project. You need to somehow make this right. Now.

      I don’t think invoking your rights will do anything. The only hope of any sort of response is to send Kickstarter multiple emails about this campaign.

      Yeah, at this point, I would like a refund... This product has not had regular updates. shows no signs of progress, I do not think we have seen real world production of these...

      Although at this point I do not think we are going to get anything back, just tossed money into the waste bin :(

      Read what that means.. posting it means nothing. It just means you can sue them for not fulfilling the obligation. Only worth suing if you are a lawyer and don’t have to lose money.

      Regular project updates are only available to the beta tester level contributors, who by now are on the 5th revision of the product getting it "just right" for the rest of us.
