      Kickstarter doesn't seem to care about this fraud -- they will close any ticket opened without commenting on it.

      How can I get my money back? Any ideas? Anyone including Zion eyes? Maybe we should all start a project called "get our money back" and some dummies like us might contribute! I am just saying!!

      Just a link to another failed Kickstarter project. The difference is -- unlike Zion Eyez, the creator is honoring the Kickstarter Terms of Service and giving a full refund.

      Regardless of the fine print, Kickstarter is as guilty as Zion Eyes. Why on earth would you release 350K to someone who only asked for 55K for development? Talk about irresponsible! The rest should've been held until a working prototype was demonstrated. Long and short; Zion Eyes robbed the bank, Kickstarter drove the getaway car. Where is the justice department???

      What they did is called EMBEZZLEMENT. How did no one go to jail???

      Do we need to trust Kickstarter???????????

    20. vinookanth on

      In India is possible, take the money and run away. In US, these guys made it possible. Please make these @#$%^& return the money we paid

    21. Michael "Waffles" Nguyen on

      I wonder at what point they'll just post an "eff you" post

      Since its only a 720p camera, they could just pay for the actual companies that are producing them to rebrand some ZIONeyes. The entire point of this, at the time, was there was nothing similar available. Now, even if they are doing their best, its obvious, it just isn't good enough.

      It will be interesting to see how the Kickstarter people handle this situation, if they do anything at all. If they do nothing, KS may well become a hub for fraudsters, as there will be no downside for ripping people off.

      No updates in the last year. No responsibility to those who invested! Identify these folks and tar and feather them!

      So let me get this straight, you can take $343,415 and live a long & happy life without any consequences? How is this possible?

    26. Rebecca Ruck on

      What is sad is that a great idea was dumped. I believe the people involved with making the poor re-branding and manufacturing decisions be identified by name so all of us investors can avoid them and any of their future projects.....nothing personal, it's just business.

    27. Anthony Racaniello on

      This is fucking bullshit, i want my fucking money back.

    28. Mido CyberDragon Taha on

      Kickstarter should do something about these guys, no updates, took the funds and dissappeared !!!!

    33. Loren Cahlander on

      I may as well write the money I put up as lost. These a$$holes will never ship. They have such poor public relations that they cannot even be bothered to lie to us on a frequent enough basis.

    34. John Foster on

      Why bother waiting any longer for Zion Eyez? You can buy, off the shelf, a fully featured 1080p video glasses in a variety of frame styles and lens treatments. I bought a pair with my own optical prescription lenses. Visit Pivothead.com, or for even more choices visit http://www.amazon.com/Pivothead-Recording-Polarized-Hands-Free-Sunglasses/dp/B009F77CFA

      24-30 weeks after this update would be Sept 25-November 6. Surely there is *SOME* update as to where our refunds are by now!

      Just a reminder to anyone that would like to get a refund, or even see Zion Eyez provide an update -- you may wish to request the Attorney General of Washington get involved. If nothing else, it might spur Zion Eyez to provide an update. Not that I expect them to actually provide information in an update, but it's worth a shot.

      I, too, am ready to ask for a refund. It's ridiculous that there's been no communication in over 5 months. This is no way to run a business.

      Don't forget the people that backed this project , me being one of them no update for a long time you need to let us know at what stage your up to now ,as I said befor we are the backers if it wasn't for us you wouldn't be where you are now so show us a little more respect thanks.

    46. Bryan Crow on

      A year late and still nothing. I'm now convinced this was a scam. I want a refund.

      It's been over 5 month with 0 (zero) update from you guys. Would you please provide an update?

      The pressing question seems to be - "Will you ship at all?"

      Competition aside from Google glass, ZionEyez is still very unique to the market, and it should still sell well even though you're later to the market than planned.

      If I learned one thing from managing technical projects myself, it's to always keep your stakeholders informed, or risk backlash.

      You are fully accountable to fullfil your obligation by shipping something, even if it's in beta, or missing certain funtionality. If you can ship something, then do a firmware/software update at a later time, please do! Apple/Microsoft/etc do this all the time, and I don't see why you couldn't follow the same go-to-market strategy. This would also provide some additional funding from non-kickstarter sales to finish whatever you're apparently stuck on.

      At some point, one of your backers will decide they've had enough and pursue recourse through legal means based on the kickstarter policy covering accountability here.
      http://www.kickstarter.com/help/faq/kickstarter%20basics#AreCreaLegaObliToFulfThePromOfTheiProj

      We'd all like an update to where you're at. I'd like to believe that the ZionEyez are noval to most of us, and something to play with, but our money is not. The longer you wait, the more fuel you're adding when/if backlash from an angry stakeholder heads your way....

      Give us something, even if it's a littel tid bit. Silence isn't helping at all.....

      Sincerely,
      Shaun

      From the original page:

      When will I receive my Eyez™?

      Your Eyez glasses will ship during the Winter 2011 season. The ZionEyez distribution team will keep you notified of all updates on your shipment.

      I'm guessing that notification will be made from their poolside room in the Bahamas
