I’m also very interested in taking over a kickstarter pledge for an 8k. I’m in Australia, but doesn’t matter as I have a shipping address in California I can use as well. I’m an adult - no BS and happy to transfer funds, once contact and trust is established.
You couldn’t seriously have expected shipping in January 2018?
Most kickstarters end up with at least a year or so over first optimistic estimate for something this complicated.
If they deliver in June\July I still would consider them almost 6 months ahead of the curve.
Personally, I thought it was a long shot and that if Pimax actually kept to the original schedule, it was likely that the headset would have numerous issues. Kickstarter projects are always “iffy”, so that needs to be taken into consideration. I’ve been lucky (so far) with the carefully chosen few that I’ve backed. I’d much rather have a good headset, than one that was shipped too soon and had problems.
I pledged for the full set 8K and a hand motion controller. I planned to sell it on eBay after I got it since I’m starting tertiary education soon (sadly). I’m in Australia. Willing to sell to anybody if interested.
