The inventor of the Rainpal electric motorcycle helmet visor wiper has called for customer and investor patience in the wake of extensive criticism for failing to deliver.
British inventor Adam Aarons has released a statement this week saying it is a complex invention.
This follows claims that the crowd-funded project was a scam and would never come to production.
Here is Adam’s release:
Rainpal might appear a relatively simple product to manufacture however in reality needs complex Mechanical, Electrical, Industrial design and assembly skills to successfully provide the clearest vision in the rain on a variety of existing visors. We have always wanted this to be completed by a single company but many can only complete one or two of the required skills which can lead to increased risk of misunderstandings upon completion of the project, 1mm in a component makes a massive difference. For over a year we have been visiting design companies and after careful screening and due diligence in the UK, North America, Europe, Israel and China we have carefully selected an outstanding company with a long track record of completing hundreds of complicated projects like Rainpal who have internal staff experts in all four skills needed to complete Rainpal. Please be patient our view is that quality is more important than time to market. Orders already placed will ship first.
The latest post from Adam says Rainpal will now come with an optional inbuilt video camera, detachable water spray, swappable battery packs and spare wipers.
While we wish inventors well with motorcycle products, investors should be wary of crowd funding or pre-ordering any product not yet available.
This comes in the wake of the Skully head-up display helmet scandal in which millions of dollars in crowd funding was allegedly squandered by the owners on fast cars and fast women.
We deleted an earlier post we had published after it was attacked by trolls and we were threatened with legal action.
Adam has been accused online of not answering questions and becoming abusive, of not supplying enough information to investors and of reposting the same video, passing it off as new.
After some trolling of this article which included personal attacks, and threats of cyber attacks and legal action, we have deleted all comments. We suggest that if you want more detail, Google “Rainpal”.
