Tableau – Automatic House Plant Watering Tray

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2015-05-17

Tableau is a work of art. It waters herbs and house plants in a wet-dry cycle using zero electricity, just like nature intended. A plant rich environment makes people more creative, more productive, and reduces stress. Some plants also help regulate air humidity and remove trace toxins from the air. Plants are good for us, and that’s why we’re making it easier for people to keep plants. Check out Pikaplant One, the vertical garden with a zero-electricity ebb-and-flow irrigation system. Also take a look at Pikaplant Jars, the plant you never need to water.

Review from Kickstarter
I have tried to contact both the company and Kickstarter multiple times and it seems oddly off to be so unkept about keeping the backers happy. We all care to help fun projects come to life but life is a stream of giving and receiving. If you can not deliver, please proceed with refunding backers. Thank you

From all the projects I backed (which is about 10) this is the only one that hasn't kept up their promise. Even the ones I backed in the summer have already come through, which are probably more advanced than this idea here. The company I work with are also already products that do the same thing as pickaplant promised.

Review from Kickstarter
So how is the product coming along? Anything yet. Already seen tons of the same stuff come into the market so guess you're falling behind on the competition.

Review from Kickstarter
Hey guys,
so I am hoping you are making something nice and I am still hoping to get the product.
Can you get any close estimates? So we are now nearly close to a two year delay.

Review from Kickstarter
There is a big difference between a project where the creators meet some problems and delays and come here to explain why regulary and a project where the creator disappear with the money without any news: this is called a scam. In the case of this project, it seems we are in the second case: a total scam with someone who just stole 90 246 euros. Unfortunately, for the prejudice of most of all, it doesn't make sense to go to see a lawyer...

Review from Kickstarter
I've stopped funding projects because most of the time they're total scams. Amsterdammers zijn sowieso niet te vertrouwen. Naar volk.
Pablo Cot Gonzalez
Review from Kickstarter
Having said that, I'd like to add the fact that the project still is a Kickstarter Staff Pick! Top tip! >.<

Review from Kickstarter
I backed up this project nearly 18 months ago... changed flat and job since! 165 euros... and it does feel like a total scam / failure... I still have a milligramme of hope left for getting my money back / tableau...

Another Crowdsourcing scam n Kickstarter team doesn't care.. no action no communication

A complete scam and kickstarter only observes.......an accomplice

Review from Kickstarter
No more SCAM projects for me. I'm done. Bye, kickstarter!

Lol!! They've just given an update. "Starting from scratch"....!
$$$ flushed down that automatic house plant of a toilet hole! O Mother!

ESTAFA.

Ze hebben het zelfs opgegeven om via Facebook te reageren. Ze maken er wel reclame voor de Tableau ...

Review from Kickstarter
Update alsjeblieft. Wel geld verdienen met het bedrijf maar geen communicatie naar je backers is een slechte vorm van een vertrouwensband opbouwen.

Review from Kickstarter
I've reached out to see if refunds were possible. Not even a reply back =/

Review from Kickstarter
Any chance we could have the final product ? didn't update, didn't feedback....
Pierre Gibouin
Review from Kickstarter
@Nelson I'm completly agree with you. So am I, I'm not at all convinced by their last communication. They say the company raised more than 120k euros funds and that their product is waited by majors european distributors but in this case, why not taking time to work better their communication ? A bad Kickstarter feedback is surely not appreciated by any investors or ressellers (comments page are public here and can be read by anyone on the Internet), They haven't connected here for more than 5 months to see what happened, I just don't believe them. This is in total contradiction with a supposedly product asked by many ressellers and several investors putting new money in a project.

Review from Kickstarter
@Roel, yes I think most people understand what kickstarter is and the risks involved in supporting a project. Let me be clear, I´m not convinced after the last communication. It´s not the communication part that is a red flag, it´s the plain fact that for 5 months the creator of the project didn´t even login to kickstarter to follow up on the project. Has a supporter, the very least I expect is for the project owner to accompany and give feedback to the stakeholders. I really hope I´m proven wrong and this company turns over a new leaf, communicating more often and in a more transparent way but I feel, in the end, this is just going to be another vaporware.
Roel Ruijs
Review from Kickstarter
Yes people, this is what investing is about, it has risks and a process could take longer. Kickstarter is not a webshop where you just order things. Yes it's totally true that they should have communicated more often, it's better to have regular short messages than 1 huge one a year. And yes I think it is taking a long time, but I am really glad that they only want to deliver a quality product! I don't need a plastic product that is worn out after a year, Quality first!

@Joaquim braz de oliveira, it´s on their website.
http://pikaplant.com/tableau/
"Pikaplant Tableau was funded in May 2015 as a Top 50 European Kickstarter design project. It’s currently in the final stages of development, and the estimated delivery date of the limited first production batch is December 2016. Pre-order before September 1st 2016 to receive a €99.00 discount. Choose between Black, White or Intuition Blue colorways."

Review from Kickstarter
Other backers, let's unite in spamming their Facebook page with complaints. Cause the way we've been treated is ridiculous and in my opinion scandalous. Maybe it will wake them up and show them to take us serious.
Joaquim braz de oliveira
Review from Kickstarter
Anyone has news of the company behind ?
Any chances of having a final product ?
@Nelson Silva, from who was the message saying that it would be finalised by end 2016 ??

I might start badgering them on Facebook to see what happens.

Review from Kickstarter
I reported the project to kickstarter. I'm done with this project and the lack of communication. I'm gonna call them this week.
Nelson Silva
Review from Kickstarter
What makes me angry is the fact that they completely abandoned the kickstarter campaign but continue to have a working site accepting pre-orders for a product that most likely will never exist.
In other words and until I see contrary proof, this is an ongoing scam that started in kickstarter and is now continuing in their website.

Review from Kickstarter
this is for sure a complete scam

Review from Kickstarter
I am disappointed as well.
Jan Kaiser
Review from Kickstarter
This has to be the most disappointing campaign I ever backed on Kickstarter. The product seemed simple enough to avoid the typical manufacturing problems most inexperienced teams run into, but we all see how that one turned out… The lack of regular updates makes this even more annoying…
Catherine Langer
Review from Kickstarter
sooooo grateful I ordered 3 of these..of which two were supposed to be gifts...nearly a year past delivery and at nearly 5 months since an update was given...almost as great as my Free Wavz backing...

Review from Kickstarter
Ik zie het slecht in, Rolph. 4 dagen en nog niets laten weten. En toen ik ze laatst belde nam er telkens niemand op. Ik zit serieus aan juridische stappen te denken.

Review from Kickstarter
Today I was promised an update. They admit they were lacking there. And thanked me for bringing it under their attention.
So... Lets see

Hello Will, accordingly to their site. "Pikaplant Tableau was funded in May 2015 as a Top 50 European Kickstarter design project. It’s currently in the final stages of development, and the estimated delivery date of the limited first production batch is December 2016"
I´m my opinion, and given there is no updates since April:
1) the project creators just gave up;
2) they are running one of the worst companies/kickstarter project ever;
3) They scammed us...
Will Lebens
Review from Kickstarter
Guys, I backed this project in May 2015 with a promised delivery date of December 2015. It's August 2016 and your last update was in March?!? WTF?! Sort your sh*t out or get off Kickstarter.

Al maanden geen update. Schandalig.

Hi team. Hope everything is going well. we haven't received any news from you for a while... that would be appreciated to receive some feedback on where you stand.

Review from Kickstarter
Ik begin ook de hoop op te geven. Gewoon respectloos dit.
Nelson Silva
Review from Kickstarter
Rolph, the not communicating part it´s a red flag. The not logging in the platform to see what the backers are saying, to experience feedback, that is a huge red flag. Call it whatever you want, you can say the creators just gave up. For me, this has all the signs of a scam, probably from a company suffering from other problems, trying to find a Hail Mary that just backfired.
Rolph
Review from Kickstarter
Why is not communicating per definition a scam? Would I like more communication? YES.
But as this is a company that is already selling products and not a start-up company, and they did mentioned what they are doing... We just have to wait (for a long time. But that is part of the Kickstarter deal)
Nelson Silva
Review from Kickstarter
Last login from the creator, May 17 2016. Pretty sure we´ve just been scammed.

Komt gewoon in december? Had vorig jaar al in december moeten zijn maar ok wat uitloop is te verwachten maar zolang zonder enige communicatie....�
Rolph
Review from Kickstarter
Ja weinig communicatie. Maar ding komt gewoon in december.
Mattias Foppe
Review from Kickstarter
Graag zou ik mijn geld retour ontvangen. Ik heb geen vertrouwen meer in een goed verloop van dit project. Het tekort aan communicatie aan jullie backers is erbarmelijk en eigenlijk ronduit schandalig.

Waar is de update voor mei?

Review from Kickstarter
@Mattias Goed idee en bedankt. Despite the setbacks we will finish this product 100%, and we'll share development updates with you at least once a month!

Review from Kickstarter
Kunnen jullie toezeggen, voor alle backers, dat er minstens 1x per maand een update is. Ik denk dat je hiermee een hoop vertrouwen kunt terug winnen dat jullie in de afgelopen tijd verloren zijn bij een hoop backers. Ik wens jullie veel succes met jullie project.
