First of all, i have funded the project and this is my first time using Kickstarter.
Yesterday i joined the livestream.
But -maybe my own mistake- i read Open API and was looking at github and noticed all repo’s. So i was assuming it was completely open source. Maybe not open-hardware but open enough to modify things in the future. But yesterday they told us that is not really the case.
They are thinking about a stetch goal to make this happen.
I find this rather strange. You start a project and you calculate the money you need to make it happen. They already reached this by 300% (300000)
Now they can just make up any number to reach this goal (say about 400.000). This is not based on anything but just to make more money.
I appreciate the work of the guys to created this project. It takes a lot of work. I do not mind if they are making money of it.
But afterwards settings a new target feels a bit cheap. I am thinking about unfunding the project. Certainly if it will not reach this target.
