Tiny Fish tank scam!

Here’s a really tiny aquaponic garden. Stick a plant in there and it’ll supposedly be fertalized by the fish poop.

The first thing I’m sure you’ve noticed is that the “tank” part is way too small to comfortably house anything larger than a SeaMonkey. This is basically a fish killer.

However, that’s not why this is here.

Both in the text, and in the video, these guys claim to have invented this device, but not yet begun manufacturing.

Very strange. Then why can I do this?

(There are a lot more. I just got bored of taking screenshots.)

He’s not an inventor at all! He’s just a reseller!

If I wanted to buy mass produced crap from some random reseller, I could go to Etsy.com! (Zing!)

But wait, there’s more!

I really wish I could take credit for this next piece of detective work, but no dice. The credit goes to this observant project commenter :
For all backers - I would be wary of this project. The project creator had another project that turned out to be a scam... I recognized his voice in the video. Just a heads up. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/75321040/free-roll-machined-gamers-dice/comments


The comment thread on this one is great.

The project owners try to answer questions about how they’re making the dice, and quickly reveil that they don’t have the first clue how these things are made!

At one point they talk about making the silicone mold for the CNC process! (The whole point of CNC is that you don’t need molds.)
