Back in June we told you about Comet, the world’s first “super smartphone” that floats in water. What makes it so super, you ask? Lots of things. For starters, it’s buoyant and water resistant, and can actually “resist water like no other smartphone”. It also features some of the best specifications available on a mobile handset to date, including a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16MP dual cameras, and even some mood-recognizing LED lights on the phone’s edge that can change colors depending on what you’re feeling. The best part? Comet Core, the company behind this wonderful product, will sell it to you for only $249 if you back their crowdfunding project.
Comet Core originally launched the Comet crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter back in June. But in a wild turn of events, Comet Core was forced to cancel their project due to “the many restrictions and regulations” they endured on Kickstarter. Now they’ve moved the project to Indiegogo, giving interested backers a second chance on throwing away $250.
I don’t think I need to tell you that this is pretty much 100% fake. The design, features and price point are all completely unrealistic, especially coming from a company that’s never actually built a smartphone. Take a look at Comet Core’s hilarious promotional video to see what I’m talking about.
Surprisingly, the new Indiegogo campaign is listed as a fixed funding project, which means Comet Core doesn’t get any money at all if they don’t reach their goal by the deadline. At the time of writing this, Comet Core has raised about $29K of its $100K goal, with 31 days left.
