    I am not sure if what it does is true or not or just sounds good. Not my area of knowledge.

    It looks pretty legit to me. It does look like there are other similar products on the market (ie RATtrap), so the technology is definitely out there, although it seems to be somewhat new. As to whether you should just wait until it comes out and see what the reviews are like is up to you.

    For $89, I may order one for our home. We have an Amazon Echo, 2 smart tvs and probably a number of other things.

    You just got one? Did you have to neuter it?

    It ships in April.

    I’ll let you know if it requires neutering.

    I guess the elves are a little backlogged?

    I'd invest if I knew the owners.

    There's a monthly fee that I just read about.... so maybe not as good as first thought?

    oops not required to pay monthly fee. I'm becoming more and more wary reading about it though. Something attached prior to any firewall. Then again any knowing crook can attach a device where wiring comes into a home....

    I have invested in 9 starter companies or ideas so far only been burned on 1 that was a 4k mini projector from a so called company out of china, now while I'm weary from companies or ideas from China now that will not stop me from investing in any if the feedback is good.

    Latest one is Stojo a company in NYC who ahve reusable coffee or drinks cups that are collapsible and look a awesome idea and mine are currently on he way now but you can now start getting them on the companies website or amazon. https://stojo.co/ Jurrien Swarts one of the founders is really approachable and answers questions, which is what I want in a kickstarter type programme. Just as an example


    As for the one you mention looks legit and good thing is the devs are answering comments really quickly. BUT all kickstarter or new ideas are a risk to invest in so only invest what you are willing to potentially loose, do not invest large sums unless willing to loose the lot as these new ideas are same as stock market.

    Collapsible cups have been around since the 1950's. I remember seeing ones like this with a pill box in the lid when I was a child. In fact, I used to take a lunch to day camp and some of the kids packed those in the lunch bag.

    Indeed they have but in the current climate of trying to recycle and use less COFFEE paper cups, the resurgence is quite apt, and a new take on the same will or "may" get folk to jump into using reusable. I just like crowdfunding some companies I think will benefit me or my life.

    Next is https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/four-seasons-colorful-retro-mechanical-keyboard#/ as I just like the design and aesthetics as again I will use this in my life.

    But you as I have said need to be willing to loose your investment as not all ideas come off, some may take longer past original deadlines, a few I have funded have gone on a 1yr longer than expected but they come through as snags will be hit in any idea.
