Sunrise Smart Pillow
Where is my pillow?
They just stolen my money
I just bought one for $99 so the price here is wrong. I love the sunrise on both sides and the meditation mode, when i try to sleep to meditation and breathe, i fall asleep 100% guaranteed every time, in under 3 minutes. Magic trick of sleeping, so it helps to have the guided meditation in it.
You know what they say about, "Once you go black?" WELL let me tell youuuu a thing or two: I received a light alarm for xmas and it has changed my life completely. I Cannot wake up right without it (like when i travel), because i've learned just how Terrible-feeling the average joe wakes up
In any case, you can only wash the cover
Is laundry possible?
They are building the pillows in China and probably distributing them directly from China or rent space when the pillows come in. Why would they rent now when they are starting out and have nothing to distribute. The loft is probably a design studio. The whole building is a commercial building, not residential. They are a new company and probably do not have the capital to buy/lease a warehouse space now. As for researching names, they have one name attached. Creator has been a backer 8 times so I am sure that KS has all the records they need. Website- they have had FB, DomainYoutube, and twitter account since March. The domain name was registered since December. If you state that they flubbed their social media campaign, I would agree. Fraud? No correlation. Patents - Patents are expensive long useless process unless you have expensive lawyers willing to do battle in China. I think they received bad advice. Pricing- it is a stupid thing that KS campaigns are doing now. I seen it with Ace Shoes, Packing cubes and etc. They up the "Early backer" by a few in order to get people to panic buy so they do not "lose" the deal. It does not show fraud or scam, but a just poor trend in KS campaigns. as for getting the product in October, I have serious doubts. 70% KS miss their deadlines. Adding that they are a new company. Add they will be dealing with an unpredictable Chinese Mfg and they will be looking to get product during the time Chinese MFG are looking to build items for the Christmas season. Plus they received much feedback on how to improve their product. They guarantee they will not hit their deadline, but that is ok. Rather a great product.
I am staying.
What about your words what they must disable backing 1$ is ravings of a madman, or you just one of projectmakers. Becase via rules ok KS even if you are pledging without any rewards you can write comments because its not a store, its funding platform, and even 1$ is a pledge too. Whats about project, if you will think with your own brain, so many options what they want to offer us for a just 99$ minus 10% of KS, its just 90$ its impossible to offer for that price so many electronic and good quality cotton in that pillow. Its only possible to make from shitty parts like so many offers come from china on ebay or aliexpress which most often not working at all, or working very bad.
So good luck to you and others who try to rage and defend this project, istead of just be stopped up and sit quiet, dreaming about magical pillow which will make your dream better for just 90$
Have seen my ultra early bird pledge get extended time and time again to the point where just about anyone can get at the same price. This seems to be more an exercise in capital raising than anything else as the communications have been totally lacking and there is also a distinct lack in transparency from the creators. Truly hope I am wrong, but not going to risk my hard-earned cash on what appears little more than a pipe dream.
Jokes aside, i am happy for you that you are able to give out "just a couple hundred dollars" to anyone that asks for them, just for the sake of helping someone develop their ideas.
I unfortunately, (and i think manh backers too) are not in this position, so before giving them put, i would like to atleast be partially reassured that i am not wasting them.
Not saying i am skipping rent to back this, not at all, but i definitely could save them for something else.
I probably will keep my pledge, but at the moment, i am a little unsatisfied with the creators so far, i truly hope that i am completely wrong.
Blindly trust someone or something is never the way to go, simply because, sadly, crappy people exist and they are ready to screw you over. Not saying they necessary are, but there is always a possibility.
I guess if i come to yout house and say "hey, i have this awesome idea to build a functioning jetpack like james bond. I can't really show you the details nor the prototype, but if you give me money i'll make you one, trust me" you'll happily throw money at me, right?
Not only because it assures the backer that the project is real and not a scam, but becauae it shows also how much they are invested in the project, and ultimately this is what makes backers stick with the project.
I personally have backed 3 other campaigns: two of them already delivered, and one is experiencong quite some dela, however the constant communication from the creators and they rapid response, explaining in detail what they are up to makes the delay completely bareable and even welcomed, because it will probably mean they are trying to make their product ad best as possible.
Unfortunately, this is not exactly what is happening here. The best case scenario is that they simply are inexperienced and will get better with time (although if they claim they have helped develop "ogher prjects" they should have at least some experience), or sadly, there might be something fishy going on.
With respect to all Kickstarter campaigns, the Creators are coming to the community with hat in hand, their biggest smiles, and their best case, to essentially beg for a donation/backing. The Creators then promise a reward for the Backers’ generosity. The Backers, however, are in a superior position the entire duration of the campaign. For a backing of even a single Dollar, the Backers can posts comments, questions and demands to their heart’s content. And when the poor Creators can’t jump as high, or dance as fast, or satisfy the every whim of the Backers, they become the subject of ridicule, and suspicion. But most importantly it should be noted, the Backers may pull their support right up to the end of the campaign. This contingent relationship is inherently unfair. The Backers have risked nothing until the close of the campaign, yet, they seem entitled. Since Backers are able to get their entire backing returned without a penalty up until the end of the campaign, then there is no detriment to the Backers during the campaign, but only detriment to the Creators. The Creators only benefit after the campaign is closed and funded. So, it is perplexing that a Backer is compelled to be a spoiler and make negative comments, prior to the end of the campaign, when he can simply exit, and does so right before exiting. It simply demonstrates a level of mean spiritedness when a Backer on his way out decides to spin as much negativity and exits with a loud ugly bang, while knowing that he has risked nothing, will lose nothing and is made entirely whole, while leaving a trail of demands, questions, comments, and negativity. I would ask the such Backers whether they behave as such in the real world, would they dare be so brazen and brave? Would you dare go to a restaurant, order, and before getting your meal, hurdle the same level of questions and demands, and if they are not satisfied, cancel your meal, then insult the staff as you exit? If you do, then I commend you for your honesty and consistency.
Why weren't the videos shown on the Kickstarter page and why are they on private on Youtube? It's just weird and plain bad marketing. I'm undecided as to whether I will keep my pledge yet. I could get a pillow like Oreous and a Philips wake up light alarm clock but that would be a little more than twice the cost of this pillow. Additionally, I see many design advantages to a product like this such as the fact that the gyroscope is in the pillow allowing the sensor for the alarm to be more accurate than anything else on the market. A directional alarm clock would be nice to avoid disturbing others and the lights should work well regardless of which way you face sleeping. I like these features and I like the price but again, this behaviour from the company is just plain weird and it makes no sense to me why they choose to market like this. I would be a lot happier if they had more demonstrations of the product and were more engaged with the public.
I want this project to succeed more than anything, because this is exactly what i have been searching for a lot of time, and i say this with all my heart.
However, the lack of communication from you paired with the multiple concerned backers (ehich surely have more experience than me) is really wearing down my confidence in you, mainly due to the fact this is a somewhat pricy plexge, and thus requires a lot of confidence in the creator.
Please, i am generally a trustful person, and would hate to withdraw my pledge, only to find out thi has been a great campaign that fulfilled every promise.
Now that we are at 10 hours before the end of the campaign, please, i beg of you, give us something. Show us the app, detailed pictures of the prototype, indepth video of it working, anything that proves us that this is not a (don't really want to say)scam.
Please, don't let me withdraw my pledge, i really don't want to.
Which was looking the same, video with only prototype and 3D graphic, lack of information, and RESULT nobody still from 2012 recieved their Magical watches
