Re: Extractor-less honey by- "Honey Flow"
I don't see it that way at all. Using Kickstarter means you get to dictate the terms of the investment to a _far_ greater extent than with professional venture capital. And if things don't work out, it hasn't really cost you anything other than some time.

Having a great idea/prototype and having to build/ship/support 10,000 orders are two completely different things. I hope they have some very competent people on staff to handle manufacturing, logistics, and customer service.
Back to the product itself, I'm super intrigued, and I'll be awaiting 24 Feb with bated breath. Some random questions buzzing around in my amateur brain:
- Can the Flow Frames be disassembled and serviced by the end user?
- Does their wax foundation ever need to be "refreshed?"
- Would the bees ever think, "Hey Sally; this part of the hive is defective. Stop putting honey over there."
- What's the honey production vs. a traditional approach?
- How do the vegans feel about this now? Just kidding!!!!
