Or you could just copy something that someone else has spent years designing and developing...if you had no imagination.

They can't all be Chinese Atoms, on the basis the Nomad didn't exist then.

A kick starter scam?
Release dates keep getting pushed back.

Stw, that's kinda what I thought.... but for it to be a succesful scam they really need to take some money.

To do that, they need the Kickstarter to start, go ahead and get funded.  Then they get their money.  If the kickstarter doesn't get funded or gets cancelled midway, they get nothing.

I mean, it's one thing to have a laugh with your mates, and kid a few people, but they really need to sell some to make any realy money.

Looks like their kickstart is Wed 19 Aug and they're teaming up with DDM ..

Loads of video on YouTube, rather sad that some of the video text refers to the 'Aerial' Atom faithful replica, blah blah ..

I notice the Hadron Kickstarter is now up and running:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/10 ... escription

19 days to go, and they're short of their funding goal at the minute.

:H:  read about it in several places but never managed to find a picture of it.
Very nice indeed - wonder if I could get some staff discount.
