But not only the big brands can bring products of this type to market, but sometimes interesting projects arise that are funded by users who pay in advance to get this product at a lower price. And one of those projects The company that was founded four years ago to bring a modular smartwatch to market has just been canceled.
Say goodbye to the modular smartwatch you can never buy
Blocks, the company that started this project, decided to abandon it after $ 4.5 million raised on Kickstarter – the website developers can use to raise money for their projects. Unfortunately for the users who opted for this modular smartwatch.
The company has claimed that two and a half years ago when the manufacturing process was finished, They severed ties with the company that was supposed to be responsible for their manufacture due to internal restructuring. The same thing happened with the company that was supposed to be responsible for the software of the device, but this time because that company was taken over by another company.
After that, the company spent $ 2.1 million – after a million loss – to leave it all ready for other companies to replace their former employees, Even so, the project did not proceed and at the moment the company has confirmed the liquidation of its assets.
Users who paid more than $ 200 to collaborate on this project can say goodbye to the money. and it seems that the rest of us have to gradually say goodbye to all of these modular experiments that will never succeed for one reason or another, as it happened with Project Ara.
