Sometimes you have to make a choice you cannot know for certain is the right one.
I’ve decided to issue refunds for the preorders and to halt product development. I do not believe that the small niche this product is going after will be enough to sustain it in the medium to long term.
The technology is solid and so is the product. I hope it will keep on living in the shadows due to some IP licensing deals, but I just don’t see the commercial, user-facing version as a viable business model. I applaud companies and designers that somehow managed to make it work for them, and I hope they are not secretly loosing money.
I’m very grateful to everyone that supported me during those years, and I’m sorry I’ve let you down.
It was a pleasure sharing this dream with you.
