Well, he's site doesn't explicitly SAY that the product is "under development" does it? Nor does it say it is a "test" website....So if someone sends a check for 150 and he accepts the money, I would say he's running a scam.....
Not saying he's doing that. But his site doesn't say the the product is ready.
Like I said (I never called it a scam, just that it was fishy) noone's yet come up with a truly working TEC fermentation jacket yet, especially one reasonably priced.
There's an ancient Islamic saying, that I've taken to heart where money is concerned, "trust god, but tie up your camels."
The closest anyones come to something like this on a commercial level is that "sleeping bag" thingy that TEX had a drawing for a few months back that you stuck a fermenter in along with frozen water bottles.
I've got an idea for something for my own use but haven't actually put it together yet. So I know how difficult it is to come up with something workable, that's why my suspicions (Yet still hope that they succeed) are out there.
If they're accepting money, then they're a scam....if they are floating a test I hope it succeeds...If it can be done for 150 and works better than my idea, I'll be the first to order one...
Once it's been used by other people and get's positive reviews....
