Indiegogo doesn't care. They take their cut right off the top. We were screwed out of $250,000 on this one campaign alone and indiegogo does nothing: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/be-maker-kit-plus-free-lessons-on-electronics-from-zero-to-internet-of-things#/comments In this campaign, there were no technological challenges - they just took the money and never produced the products or sold them elsewhere.

The FTC is finally starting to go after these thieves: http://techcrunch.com/2015/06/12/the-ftc-goes-after-its-first-failed-crowdfunding-campaign/

It's a 2 yr old post with an old scam. It is single use. You need 365 of them for a year. Who on earth thinks they'll be under $5 ? Even at $5 each it would be $1825 a year out of your pocket because insurance won't pay for such nonsense.

Still waiting for the technology which would make this feasible.
(Maybe in 10-20 years)
In the meanwhile, nothing but a very profitable con.
Apparently the original scammers need more money now.
Beach living costs more than it used to.

In Less Than 2 Hours, Airing Surpasses $100,000 Goal to Develop Micro-CPAP - See more at: http://www.sleepreviewmag.com/article/l ... ShjQ1.dpuf

throw away ??

it is likely to take a lot more than 100k to develop that and get it approved
IF I ever say anything incorrect somebody will post true facts to prove it. But when my posts are accurate they will always attack me personally. You can decide whether my post is correct or not by looking at which they did. [color=#FF00FF]

Yes it will cost more than 100K to develop and get to market, but start-up funding is always done in stages.

Maturity is the ability to stick with a job until it's finished; the ability to do a job without being supervised; the ability to carry money without spending it; and the ability to bear an injustice without wanting to get even.

From their own site: Functioning prototypes of various components, some of which are moving at operational speed, have already been built. A key component has yet to be demonstrated – micro-blowers blowing air.

So all is good, except the part that blows air!!!

In other news, "Resmed announces newest CPAP machine, the Airless 15, which only costs $26 due to the fact that it blows no air! Users love it, "totally silent" one said, shortly before he died."

Don't even need to take it out of it's box, just set the box on the nightstand, and wait until you see stars. Worth every penny, saves money on breakfast too, you won't want any. :lol: Jim
