      I received mine years ago — but they won’t update their app to cover iOS11, so it is nothing but a brick at this point. Plus the battery no longer holds a charge, so if I plug it in to a power source, it will glow with their logo. You can use the onboard controls, but you’re limited to that and nothing else.
      I would be mad if I didn’t receive mine, as many of you are, but even if you got it today, you’d still be stuck with an app-less ‘smart’ light.

      Still coming back once a year to check on the status of this, still no updates...

    7. Saibal Chakraburtty on

      No coincidence that 'L8' is pronounced 'Late'. As backers, we accept risk - Kickstarter is not a store. But as backers, we expect updates. If you've not been successful, tell us why. Please find the courage to do so.

      What's the latest on this project? Been literally years since the last update.

    10. lk on

      Let us know if you're successful. One of the many projects that left me disgusted with Kickstarter and their non-existent vetting/ support.

    11. Jaber Mohammad on

      Its June 2017 and I have not received my product yet. I will request a refund through Kickstarter.

    12. Clay on

      I guess I'll be the post for April.

      I wonder what rock these guys are hiding under.

      I'll try again :)

      If anyone else is interested in my L8, let me know (just pay shipping)

      Otherwise it's to the bit bucket.

    14. Rune Sovndahl on

      This is probably another kickstarter scam I also
      Haven't received mine!

      Heri, I have not heard back from you. I'll wait another day, then will open the L8 to the next interested party.

      If anyone would like mine, let me know, It's been sitting around a drawer for a year. Just pay for shipping and it's yours.

      I don't think it will ever come.

      man it would have at least been nice to get a - "sorry we didn't do what we promised" note.

      I havent got one either (sweden)

      Yep, I am also pretty bitter about this failed delivery (france). I've backed other KS products since this one - all of which deliver, not always on time, but do deliver. I always advise ppl around me that failures like this can happen. Pretty pi**ed about this one though, bought it as a present for someone.

      Does anyone know if they're alive? The lack of communication is a real problem
      how many years now??

    27. Mathew Bitner on

      Any updates for us?

    28. Athanasios Mazarakis on

      Is there anyone here who knows if there is an initiative to sue them? Would be willing even to invest more.

      Still didn't get the product at all …

    32. Jamie on

      Well the app hasn't worked in iOS for a long time (opened and crashed) - then today I see it is updated to work in iOS9 .. great except now they have made it incompatible with my iPhone 5 - why would they do that?

    33. Saibal Chakraburtty on

      Based on your update from almost a year ago, you had mentioned running out of cash and hoping the sales of units off-Kickstarter would help fund fulfilling Kickstarter orders. What's the latest? We are your backers and I hope most of us realized that Kickstarter is *NOT* a store. There are risks of course. Share with us the latest update and if we can help, we will.

    34. Jeffrey Bower on

      I come back once in a while to see if there's anything interesting going on with this project. These individuals never intended to honor their previous update. The project had failed, they ran out of money, and were simply hoping a feel good "Where going to get this project completed" update would get the group to quite down and honor any law suits that come at them by saying "Hey look, we at least promised we'd try!"

      They've not been back on kickstarter since Feb 17, 2016. If they were serious about this one would think they would be logging in often and providing updates. By technology terms this project is now a dinosaur. I'd rather get my $135 back at this point but we all know that'll never happen.

    35. Marcus on

      01.06.2016
      About 4 years ago I invested 135$. The website and forum are still online but there seems to be no response at all.
      I did not receive any device yet and I did not receive any answer on any contact request. I retried it today but have not much hope. Let's see :)

      I feel like my contribution was wort it to learn first hand what a failed campaign looks like and what to avoid if I ever launch a kickstarter myself.

      Send me my L8!
      You must send L8 to all unreceived backers!
      But you have L8 for sale, why don't you send L8?

    39. Athanasios Mazarakis on

      I feel so close... wait I moment, what is the opposite? ;) But hey, I´m right now for CHI conference at the bay area... maybe just meet some of you guys and do some serious binge drinking about my pledged 214 bucks? :D

      Well, their website map still has a lot of pending orders listed. But who knows how long it has been since an update.

      Still waiting. Backer 1.424.
      Any news?

      Hello. Still waiting. Backer #1097. I'd consider buying one more if you'd send me two, but, I suppose it isn't that simple.
