CST fails to develop ultra-thin flexible E Ink watch, project's fate uncertain

In 2013, CST introduced the CST-01 ultra-thin, flexible E Ink watch. The company later raised over $300,000 in a kickstarter campaign, offering each watch for $129.

Unfortunatly, CST faced production problems, and due to low component yields, and actual price of each watch climbed to $260. CST decided to change its manufacturor (Flextronics), but it is almost out of money.

CST aims to sell its assets - but if they fail to do so, they may publish all design documents for free. In any case, it is highly unlikly that any of the 8,000 supporters will actually get a watch.
