Um mês atrás, comentei sobre o iFind, um localizador Bluetooth que não precisa de bateria.
Eu me perguntei como eles conseguiam fazer isso. Muita gente fez a mesma questão e a empresa não respondeu a pergunta.
Aí o Kickstarter cancelou o projeto sem cobrar nada de quem de boa fé quis ajudar o projeto
This is a message from Kickstarter’s Trust & Safety team. We’re writing to notify you that the iFind – The World’s First Battery-Free Item Locating Tag project has been suspended, and your $40.00 USD pledge has been canceled. A review of the project uncovered evidence of one or more violations of Kickstarter’s rules, which include:
A related party posing as an independent, supportive party in project comments or elsewhere
Misrepresenting support by pledging to your own project
Misrepresenting or failing to disclose relevant facts about the project or its creator
Providing inaccurate or incomplete user information to Kickstarter or one of our partners
Accordingly, all funding has been stopped and backers will not be charged for their pledges.
No further action is required on your part. (traduzir)
A WeTag, responsável pelo iFind disse que mesmo sem o Kickstarter irá levar o projeto a frente e certificado por laboratórios independentes.
To all of the “iFinders”
We thank you for your support of iFind and support Kickstarter’s decision to suspend the campaign. Not in any way because of the fact that we are a scam. WE ARE NOT!! The negative publicity surrounding the campaign by a select few was detrimental not only to Kickstarter’s reputation, but our company as well. Because of all the negative press that was generated by it, we had seriously considered canceling as well. But we believe in our product and wanted to be able to give all the genuine backers who supported us throughout all of this negativity, the product they wanted and believed in. We stand proud.
We will start selling the product when it is completely certified by independent laboratories. We welcome our supporters to continue to get updates at our website (www.wetaginc.com) and via social media and we look forward to a successful launch in the fall. (traduzir)
