nice video, is it flexible?

EDIT: what about a camera, or some way to read qr codes (this is probably really important, or at least some way to use firstbits)

So you're Pro Crowdfunding now? That's not what you said to ...
Ignoring the contradiction in your post ('now' = present tense, 'said' = past tense), yes, I am pro-kickstarter and crowdfunding for non-software initiatives. I always have been.

The thread you referred to was someone trying to crowdfund a free piece of software, which I am still against. Crowdsourcing is the solution for projects that have no material costs (like software).

I've updated my post there to be more specific. Thanks for pointing that out!

This looks promising. Watching closely.
I might want to invest in this, but 250k might be slightly above my "play money" budget  Undecided

$250k is only the lower limit after the first round of investments. For the first round, it's much lower.
If you're serious about wanting to invest some money, you might want to contact Matthew directly though (through a PM for example).

QR codes might be cool initially, but they quickly become a hassle if you need them for day-to-day transactions (ever watched two guys with shaky hands try to scan QR-codes off their smartphone displays in bright sunlight?) I always considered them as somewhat of a hack for conveying Bitcoin addresses. NFC or similar (non-optical) wireless transmissions are clearly the way to go for the future. I'd even go so far as to say that QR-codes are a big hurdle for Bitcoin on the way to mainstream adoption.

UPDATE: I've been notified by our legal that direct investments into the Ellet Systems company in the UK would require signed HNWI statements before even discussing investments so I won't be discussing any investments in this thread in the future. Please contact by email so that we can sign the proper paperwork (either High Net Worth Individual or Sophisticated Investor statement) before discussing.

Hey, Matthew. Some wiseguy has an idea. Perhaps it may be a useful feature of your Ellet. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=94627.0

Peace, bro.

Free fish tomorrow.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Just two things:

1) Investment rounds in the UK and US are still under way

2) We're still in negotiations with our new manufacturing company in Shenzen.

I'll post more when there is reason to. It's all boring development and business meetings from here on.
