Going the Extra Mile through Paper Towns

The Plot thickens...Sharing designs before final iteration is a bad idea...but we all know the outdated Patent system is a racket, why does a song writer get automatic protection for 25 to 50 years, while the designer gets design rights only for 3 years? Wayback in 2013, I experimented with a couple of design ideas, I produced a number of designs released them here & GrabCad. I had so many other ideas I wanted to commit to Paper(CAD), that these design ideas lay dormant. Due to recent interest in the designs, and the revelations of the last week, it is time to revisit these designs and merge them into final product. Obviously I am a little concerned that while devoting more time to this, my other creations will be lying there waiting to be stolen while I'm not looking. Who knows how many more ebike scams will happen in the meantime, but its time to use the momentum & kinetic energy that has built up around these early concepts.

This was one of the other designs done at the same time (the PoGo a GoGo), it's time to merge the thinking of all the iterations into one killer bike. I need foot soldiers to help me spread the word of whats coming down the tracks, just a few more extra miles to GoGo Put a Motor in this one and and the Sondors ebike will vanish in a Dust Storm. Though what seems clear about the successful funding scams is they are not buying because of great design or features, its usually because the price is too good to be true.

GoGo Bike Scammers Caught Red Handed!

Well its been an interesting few days, I was alerted to the fact that this ebike concept, produced in 2013, was causing a stir on IndieGoGo. Thanks to all those who contacted me after recognizing the bike as mine. Images Taken Without Consent! More on this as soon as I've compiled the info. Took 2 days to get the Campaign Pulled but it's down now and hopefully people will recieve their refunds ASAP. The experience has been interesting but not unexpected, perhaps it's time to re-visit this design & finish it. I've been so busy creating other designs to get them out of my mind and into the computer, whilst searching for the best product to launch for crowdfunding, with all the doubts that go with such undertakings. So far no explanation or redress, public statement has been offered from IndieGoGo I wonder will they help to track down the fraudsters & prosecute? I doubt it but I will let you know what happens.
