Amazing to see what happened. Feel really bad for the R&D guy and the backers.

Yeah, I have a friend that lost out on this as well. Really unfortunate!

Looks like you now own a small piece of a house in Canada now! You should show up with a sleeping bag.

Re: peachy $100 3d printer!

I almost backed that.

Re: peachy $100 3d printer!

I kind of feel bad for the guy that is the face of Peachy, and had to admit to the problem, and also those that backed the project.

It is my personal opinion that the house should be seized and sold for market value and the funds used to refund all of the backers.

Didn't the Kickstarter close a long time ago? If I recall, this project has been behind for a year or two. That won't impact people getting their money back, but it does eliminate the possibility of people doing charge backs.

They ran a campaign on indigogo for while shortly after kickstarter. That was the one I backed and that was two years ago. In fact last week I emaile them for a status and potential refund. Now I know why no response.
