Xiaomi Rips off Kickstarter Idea- Classless Act

1

November 27, 2014 by ...

Xiaomi has gone begging for $1billion in funding so they can get their house in order. They got one billion plus.

Pressy, on the other hand, created a product, Kickstarted it and begged for $40k. They too hot more than they had asked for. They were funded to the tune of $700,000. Unfortunately for them that brought the IP thieves around and Xiaomi apparently ripped Pressy off.

Take a look at the pics from here

They pretty much look the same and pretty much act like two peas in a pod. Both are programmable and allow users to do up to ten different things with their phones.

Once again, I’d like to repeat. Pressy had the original idea, asked for $40k and got 700,000. Xiaomi, on the other hand just got $1 billion. Based on this, how low class is it of Xiaomi to rip off an idea of a struggling upstart?

Hell, Xiaomi probably could have bought the idea for $1 million, had $999,000,000 left in the bank, and garnered some positive ink. Of course they did not do this and merely look like low brow thieves who cannot innovate.
