      I miss the good old days of when Ben Chen would stop in here to post super cool lies and get our hopes up.

      I think I'm going to start a website called LawsuitStarter. Get funds to hire lawyers to do class action lawsuits against scamming kickstarters.

      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."

      @dim3m - They probably going to ask us to donate a kidney as well.

    13. Creator dim3m on August 14

      @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.

    14. Creator Margarete Quinones on August 12

      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

    15. Creator Jackie Cheng on August 12

      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.

      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!

    19. Creator Insomnia on August 9

      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!

      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.

    25. Creator Chris Davies on August 1

      @Robert Zander- I think an undertaker would be more appropriate. Possibly a historian also.

    26. Creator Robert Zander on August 1

      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!!!

      Why can't you guys keep us informed to what is going on?

    31. Creator Brian Cooney on July 26

      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)

    32. Creator James Webster on July 22

      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.

      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!

      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......

      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."

    39. Creator David Lusskin on July 11

      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...

      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.
