I miss the good old days of when Ben Chen would stop in here to post super cool lies and get our hopes up.
Hi there... Is there any motion on the other side? In this, case no mews is bad news! However... I guess Nobody did really expect anything to happen...as the project has been dead fort some time, anything else but this would have been a surprise....
I think I'm going to start a website called LawsuitStarter. Get funds to hire lawyers to do class action lawsuits against scamming kickstarters.
Are you already burns in hell

I found a phone number for sonnovation. Not sure if itll get us anywhere but it wasnt listed on their site. 561-209-1201.
All I could think of was the South Park monocycle episode...google it for those interested. :P
I have just learned from high placed sources inside the idkey management that the reason the M series has not been released to backers is because it is going to be the first consumer based product to be made with sonavations new technology. It all happened during a staff meeting a few months ago. A sharp, but new intern commented that the M series idkey device resembled a suppository. Quickly catching his mistake after getting several looks, everyone turned to the CFO who was chairing the meeting. Expecting to be fired on the spot, the intern was shocked when the CFO turned to his team and asked "what about that?" "Could the new technology be adapted to bio-metric identification rectally? A light bulb went off in the room as it was quickly embraced. A suppository with rectal bio-metric identification technology could revolutionize the security industry. The technology is new and will take several years to develop. When asked about the extended time frame, the CFO replied by simply stating "we're a little constipated right now, but as soon as this enema starts working the flood gates will open."
Got a Yubico Neo in the interim, does a lot in a small form factor.
@dim3m - They probably going to ask us to donate a kidney as well.
@Jackie, Don't be ridiculous, "need little bit more funding"? That ain't gonna work. We need to give them a lot more money and maybe even our souls.
I submitted the complaint too. Idk if it will get us anywhere but it was worth a shot. They've really ruined kickstarter. I hope no one else has to go through this ever again
LOL...a bunch of you guys still think this is a real product?!?! They scammed us all. All lies in every update trying to drag it out. Even if it was real then it's already a 3+ year old tech that's totally useless compared to what's out there. But for those that still holding out hope then I have news for you!! I'm sure their next update will say that they will offer it in gold color! But then after a few months then they will say the color didn't come out right and they're sourcing a new color factory. And a few months after that they will say that they are about to ship but they don't have enough tongues to lick those stamps so they're going to China to find a factory of tongues. The next update after that would be the China tongue factory had a fire and everything was bbq so they had to source another factory. But by that time they decided that gold wasn't important and that USB-C port is more important so they have to go back to the design phase. But before they go into the design phase, you have to pay more money because it's so close to completion that they just need a little bit more funding.
Reported it as well. Last update was May, need some information.
"I just reported this project to KS as being neglected in Post-Funding.
I suggest others do the same. It is at the bottom of the campaign page"
hello sonavation, could you please give us an update when should we expect the device shipped? It's been months since your last update. Thanks!
Didn't any lawyers buy this thing? Seriously, it's never going to be made, This is fraud plain and simple. This is the ideal situation to send a message to kickstarter that you can't play us for fools and get away with it!

Damn...I really thought we were going to get it after the last round of (mis-)information.
Good news for Kickstarters being ripped off:
I had thought that new life had been breathed into this project. There was never any mention of there being an annual fee outlined in the original deal. Now all of a sudden we're going to be charged yearly? Shouldn't we get the access to all the updates etc. for free? I think we should get free lifetime access for free IF this thing comes out. We've been to hell and back with this project and we deserve more. More updates would be amazing at this point.
@Robert Zander- I think an undertaker would be more appropriate. Possibly a historian also.
It seems the project was nearly resurrected, with much enthusiasm. Then, as suddenly as the recovery process began, we are seeing a reoccurrence of the disease and all communication has ceased. The patient is in a death spiral - get the crash cart!!!
Update please or refund!
When will the idkey M ship?
That video is from 3 weeks ago
Thanks to twitter I found this.. https://vimeo.com/132445079
Why can't you guys keep us informed to what is going on?
shouldnt these guys of had a working version of this before they started! it shouldnt take three years to complete a project like this. i think ill check with the my legal office, because i have asked for a refund (probably like most of you did)
Like many of you I have waited (hoped, begged, prayed) for this project to actually come true. Like any tech, this idea has come and gone in so many ways. I'm sure many have tried to ask for a refund to no avail. I personally have and like some of you have received an offer to pass on the IDKEY M that we were promised and receive an IDKEY X that is now shipping. I think I will take them up on that offer and pray I can get some sucker to buy it off of me to make back some or all of my money. Good luck to you all, and lesson learned.
Sonavation discovers method for reading fingerprint through Gorilla Glass
"I am surprised that no Attorney General or state attorney has decided to make a name for themselves and press charges on this.The public has been deceived, and potentially defrauded with a modern version of "snake oil""
Would it be quite a case load if General or State attorneys were to took all those cases? I have at least 10-15 cases to provide them, including this one!
Their last log in was on July 15th. Must have been checking on the last project they backed....
So I got this response on July 9th, I am interested in discovering what "soon" is in terms of this project now. This was the first project I ever backed, feels like years ago, oh wait......

We greatly appreciate your continued patience. We'll have an update for you
soon and we'll notify you all when shipping begins. Please notify us if you
have a change in shipping address. We currently have XXXXXXXXXXXXX on file.
Jackie, I posted this last December, "It feels like there is going to be a catch somewhere before this is over, like a mandatory subscription or something similar. Just a hunch and hope I'm wrong."
When one looks at the totality of the circumstances surrounding the progression of this "project" one can make an argument that this is fraud ab initio. (From the beginning) The initiators of this project clearly stated that they were ready to go into production. The subsequent back pedaling and revisions could support an allegation of deceit and an intent to defraud investors rather than actually produce a finished product. I am surprised that no Attorney General or state attorney has decided to make a name for themselves and press charges on this.The public has been deceived, and potentially defrauded with a modern version of "snake oil". If somebody said I have the Brooklyn bridge to sell you, and people paid, them there would be no question and charges would be brought. It makes one wonder if there are politics playing out behind the scenes.

"IDKEY Premium Service can be purchased via the IDKEY website. Premium Service includes access to firmware updates and feature upgrades. Service lasts for 1 year. Renewable annually."
Guess they want to milk your wallets every year...
But I think we're safe since we're never going to see an actual product. Even if it comes out, it's obsolete 3 years old tech...
AN UPDATE WOULD BE APPRECIATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just reading all the comments is worth the $99.00. This dog died a long time ago but folks just won't let go. Put the KalCan in the bowl and wait for her to come home. I got bad news for you...it's going to be a long long wait. La data daa Lassie come home.....it's the stuff a good show is made of... But the story has a sad ending and we all cry.
Again ...... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!
Today is 6/27 and last update was 5/27. I thought they would at least post an update at the 30 day point. Well, maybe Mon, Jun 29.
From the Apr 2 update:
"Rest assured the first units have been dedicated to you our Kickstarter backers and we have not changed our overall shipment schedule to begin to fulfill deliveries over the next few months." We are at the end of that window. (Apr 2 - Jul 2)
Bottom line, here's what I'm asking for. An update concerning 1) the technical problems (May 11 update about sensor communications circuits in the daughter board) and 2) a current estimate of the "overall shipment schedule". Could it be slightly better than "over the next few months"? I'm NOT looking for an exact month and day! Thanks.
