      Thank you for your interest in the beta test, everyone! We've received a lot of requests and will follow up as soon as possible.

      @JP We'll be sending a new member survey before units are shipped out. You'll be able to update your address that that time

      @Ian @Reid @Adam We apologize for the delay - we're pulling as much new info as we can for the next update.

      Just rude @somabar, Just friggin rude at this point.

      I want to thank somabar for saving my liver. I have really decreased my alcohol intake waiting on a never going to happen product for three years.

      Who would’ve thought a month later would be considered “shortly.” I guess it is all relative considering this project was only funded a little while ago (over three years ago).

    23. Somabar Creator on

      @William We've been keeping everyone posted as best as we can. We're pulling together the next update following this delay.

      Who am i kidding. We're probably not gonna get another update for another two weeks, and even then it will probably be another useless "single photo update"

      Since when is two weeks "shortly"

      @rich We'll be sure to continue sending you updates as we get closer to delivery.

      Has there been a delivery date that I missed out on?

    28. Somabar Creator on

      @Ian We apologize for the wait. We try our best to post a monthly update, and we're looking forward to sending the next one.

    29. Ian Zander on

      wow. You guys tell me to hold my horses an update is coming shortly on May 8. Around the one month mark, May 17. Another two weeks go by. Still no update. Its not hard.

    30. Somabar Creator on

      @JW We'll post the next update shortly!

      Any updates?

    32. Somabar Creator on

      @Steven We understand it's inconvenient to keep checking back. If you've signed up for email updates for your Kickstarter account, you can just check your inbox instead of having to log in regularly.

    33. Steven Ickman on

      Hello... Long time backer first time poster... I have a very serious request...

      I've long given up on Kickstarter, unfortunately, do to several projects that are years past there originally ship estimates. Out of all those projects I feel like this is the one project that may someday actually happen. So here's my ask...

      Can you guys please not give backers a 1 month window to reply to your shipping email with their latest address? I honestly check this site maybe once every 6 months just to see how close you are and I feel like I might be pissed if I check back next summer just to find out you actually shipped and I missed the window to get the thing I already gave you $400 for.

      I totally understand that after 3 years your going to need to ask backers for there shipping address and if you got a 30% response rate I'd be surprised. I just don't want to be double screwed from this whole thing. Thank you and best wishes

      Sweet! Only 24 more updates to go!!! Wheee!!!!!

    35. Somabar Creator on

      @Ian We post an update roughly every month. Stay tuned for the next one!

    36. Ian Zander on

      We'll have an update soon...April 12. Well it is now coming up on a month since then. Where do we stand?

      Someone I haven't seen in a long time asked "so where's that robot bartender at?" Me: Not here, they still haven't shipped. Him: wasn't that like FOUR years ago? Me: embarrassing face palm!

      @Steve Glad you liked the video! Our team is in China right now, so we'll have an update for you soon.

      Thanks @Paul for sharing the video!

      If the machine does actually produce good cocktails like in this video, I'll be more than happy to eat back all of my bad words.

      @Somabar: I'm really surprised that this video didn't come out in an update. I see this video as a statement on how close you are to production.

      @Sahey: sorry buddy but this project looks like crap. Not sure where you should put all of the liquids for making the cocktails...

    41. Somabar Creator on

      @Chris @Sahey Somabar's features will be worth the wait! Thanks again for your support, and we look forward to updating you on our progress.

      Haha, I just came on here to post that. Beat me to the punch @Sahey!

      My concern is that it holds more ingredients but at the cost of volume. More variety but less drinks without refilling. I would like a machine that dispensed ice or held a refrigeration unit at this price range, but that won’t happen. If we ever get them, I think I still prefer the design and functionality of Somabar. I will be following the new project production timeline as we wait the endless years for our products.

      It was a *very* welcome surprise to get an update earlier than expected in my inbox tonight. Genuinely, even though it was light on substance it felt nice to know where things stand and what’s ahead. Keep up these frequent updates, light as they may be, and I think you’ll have a lot of happy backers like me going forward.

    46. Somabar Creator on

      @Paul Thank you!

      @Somabar - nice to see the progress, would love to contribute in case of any major issues as well, been in the plastic injection molding line for years with a lot of experience in dealing with various issues at both the molding and production/actual manufacturing level.
      Looking forward to the next update and hopefully a delivery ETA very soon. Just hoping that it would be done by May/Jun rather than hit another year anniversary since we backed this project. Cheers!
