Do you really think the money pledged by the backers was sufficient to develop the gateway and even finance the production?
That’s what they said when we backed the project.
The Kickstarter pledges will pay for design, hardware production, software, backend software and shipment, regulation compliance testing, community and customer management and project documentation so you can see what we are up to.
Just follow the initial campaign text and the updates to see why not all backers are happy.
Of course, many Kickstarter projects don’t deliver at all or with even bigger delays. And I think I will be happy when I finally receive my products. But to be surprised that some backers on here are so critical (as SmartEaling wrote), in turn surprises me very much. I still think the project will be a success and the Kickstarter backers will be happy in the end, but very many things went wrong and there’s a lot that could be/have been improved about the communication and “expectation management”.
