Investors aren't a limitless source of funding though and the Smach guys have already shown they can burn through other peoples' money and have nothing to show for it with the whole Rhombio saga. They are on their second injection of cash and still have their original orders to fulfil whilst building up debt and dividing their company up. Maybe they have the funds to produce a very large initial batch and/or have big orders from retailers, with the limited appeal and high price of this thing I would doubt that. You have to wonder how many they could actually sell before it reaches saturation point.
