She can move around by herself. And she builds her own map of the house with her navigation & mapping algorithms. She can feel the surrounding environment with all her sensors. She communicates with all your connected devices. She is your family’s peace of mind when it comes to saving energy and keeping the house secured.

A week ago I received my Robot. What a deception I wish I never knew about it, $800 throw it to the garbage. Please if you have the option to receive store credit, take it .at least if you put the stuff in EBay for sale and get some of you money back.

Yeah it's crazy that they would have even started this Kickstarter campaign. This Vietnamese guy wasn't even close to making a robot, he made this fancy video and raised $300,000. If he put half the time he put into that video maybe we'd have a robot.

If any one request the robot please consider it twice before you do it. PURE GARBAGE! Get something else

I have been in contact with Duy for the past 2 1/2 weeks. I am ( fingers crossed) picking up my Personal Robot this next Tuesday. Will let you all know.

Review from Kickstarter
I received a check in the mail for $995 as a refund. A few days after I deposited the check I received an e-mail notifying me that I had $1200 in store credit. I quickly purchased a desk, chair and cabinets off of their website. I think it may have been an error on their part to provide me with both a check refund and the store credit but I'll assume it was an apology for the 2 years of waiting.

I got my refund in the form of credit with Autonomous. Thank you.
Crystal Waltz
Review from Kickstarter
Those of you who got a refund, did you get an actual monetary refund or credit to be used on their products? I was offered and accepted credit to be used on their products as I really do like some of their stuff. However, when I tried to use the credit yesterday, I was unable to because that feature wasn't working and it was suggested I use a credit card and they would then refund the card in 3-5 days. I said no, I would wait for the feature to work. Anyone else have a similar experience? I am willing to wait, but I do expect them to follow through.

Everyone must know by now that the Robot is NEVER coming and you should all ask
for you refund right away. As a parting comment, all I can say is what a scam! They showed
us a prototype of a Robot that does not exist and then strung us along for 2 years. I did get my refund and I am now thrilled to be finished with these phonies and liars. Nice chatting with you, my fellow suckers.

We now know that they DO NOT PLAN ON EVER delivering a robot. Those lucky ones that got a refund, you are smarter than me. I have held out and now I think they are going to screw us again and keep our money. It just amazes me that 2 years ago they had a working prototype, and now they have nothing but our money. Sound like a scam to you?

@James Lindenberg - you don't want a desk, trust me!
@John Taylor- you're better off emailing them at human@autonomous.ai but given the email got, it looks like that ship might have sailed

I got my refund today. I requested it a week ago. I contacted them through their website and not kickstarter. Hope this helps

I want my money back and have been asking for months now! I keep getting excuses. Please deliver our money back, it's the least you can do after wasting our time waiting for this.

If you want one just put a Google Home on top of a Roomba! Guaranteed it would be more effective! Fuck these twinks!

Dude!!! I gave you a grand ($1000 in Vietnamese). Give us our money back, send us a robot or at least send me a desk! You're ripping us off! Your device has taken so long that I know it will be disappointing, Alexa, Google Home and others already exist. Your promise is overdue, make good on it so I can sell this thing on eBay and get my money back!

Review from Kickstarter
I did receive a refund mid-late June, it was promised to me in April, so I did get it, but it took a while with emails every 1-2 weeks prodding them. I bet that a lot of backers are going to opt for the refund, $160K is a lot to ask any company to have to shell out at once, so they will probably try to spread it out.

Review from Kickstarter
I asked for a refund in June and have had replies saying they would send the money but it never shows up. I am now going to begin legal action.

Review from Kickstarter
Anyone get their refund yet? I bet nobody got one and nobody will.
You can bet your last penny---no refund, no update AND NO ROBOT.........
The whole The Autonomous Team should be ashamed of themselves

Hi guys, Thank you for trying, please refund me as per your promise below in the update on the 4th July.

How do we get a refund . This thing was cool 2 years ago but not anymore if ever it gets here.

I guess the end of July that we were just promised is not going to happen.
Robotbase
Review from Kickstarter
Hi, We’re sorry that we haven’t been able to update you sooner. Whilst we are working tirelessly to complete our Personal Robot, I’m sure that you can appreciate that creating a truly living office companion is a complex task. We have already achieved playing music on Spotify, call you a cab, manage your social media and answer general questions.
However we are still far from our original goal. We still need -(duration of time)-to finish the new set of features. We regret to share this news and we take our promises seriously at Autonomous, so if you're not happy with our progress, we would like to offer you a refund and cancellation. (please direct message us) We are dedicated to making offices smarter and we will not stop until we meet our goal of creating an effective Personal Robot Thank you for your patience and understanding, The Autonomous Team.

Yeah probably Mel! It's unfortunate but your probably right.

Review from Kickstarter
Ben, I got the exact same reply 2 weeks ago---word for word.
So now, instead of updates, we get a form letter. How professional.
Isn't it nice that it plays music on Spotify--don't they know you can
play music on Spotify without their help? And answer general questions too--siri did that how many years ago? I hate to say it, but if we ever get this robot it will probably be a piece of junk.

Here is the first response, again sharing since they have not responded with an actual update. I want my robot. I don't want a refund if it is truly in the works.

Ben, great email, too bad they do not read them.
Didn't they show us a prototype 2 1/2 years ago?
If we ever get this robot, it will probably be a piece of
junk anyway--I do not expect much from this company anymore.

Review from Kickstarter
Excuse my language in this comment but I sent this email to "the founders" and felt we should share our communications with them: 2.5 years since it was funded over what you hoped for $161,537. Now 9 months since the last update. Promises made, and gone. Beta unit, promised, even walked into the Mentone Ca office and confirmed I was getting one, but alas, not! Reading all the other backers comments, the fact the "personal robot" has been removed from your website, makes all of us backers wonder if you didn't just take our $161,537 and develop all these other things. Or maybe you brought these to help to generate positive cash flow to help finish the "Personal Robot". At this point a Refund isn't what I want. I want my robot. If the Robot isn't going to happen then " cowboy the Fuck Up " and let us know and start sending refunds to us. If you had issues, delay ( that is already obvious ) tell us why, for what reason, new goal ( realistic time frame, Actual not what you think we want to hear ), but "Fucking Communicate"! That is Key Boys and girls. I'd normally wouldn't use this language because it doesn't help but this is ridiculous! You have had enough time to come up with a story, real or just another fairytale to keep us on the hook. I'm going to share this with the rest of the backers, and I want a response as do all the others. I'm not asking for something we are not due. And With REAL Answers! Not Fairytales! Be Real!
Be Honest!
Be human! Ben

An other pseudo company taking people's money. I feel so frustrated whit the fact of they can take you money and nobody can't do nothing to help.

Review from Kickstarter
I contacted Robotbase (now autonomous.ai, CEO Duy Huynh) for a refund about a week ago, but didn't get any response. They've missed the deadline repeatedly. I am disappointed that this company is sitting on $161,000+ since the campaign closed in Feb 2015, while developing and selling other stuff on their website.
