'Ero' is Japanese shorthand for 'erotic'.
SolRo
of course it would be wifi tethered with a smartphone app.
Oscar Wildcat
Yes, of course it does. How else are you gonna build those big bot armies to DDOS stuff without it?

What I love about the design is after you are done finding your phone, connecting to the cloud, getting your code, entering your code, then you press a fucking button to squeeze the bag.

wtf japan
It looks like it's squeezing juice out of a bag full of juice.
SolRo
I think what it does is squeeze a bag full of pre-ground juice and pulp, like what would come out of a regular juicer if it didn't have a centrifuge.

So what you are saying is, it's squeezing juice out of a bag full of juice

SolRo
No. If it were just juice then this would be an even funnier farce.

$400 squeezer for your capri sun pouches.

Oscar Wildcat
It's designed to squeeze money out of marks, and at 120 million so far, it's been a resounding success.

How did this ever make it past the Kickstarter phase?

Definitely an Emperors New Clothes scenario, as each new sucker realizes they got duped, they keep quiet because they don't want to look so stupid.
SolRo
Because silicon valley and other yuppies will throw money at anything that's wifi enabled with a smartphone app. This one also had bonus rich health nuts that will pay anything for 'natural healthy living' buzz words.

Oscar Wildcat
It's tailored to garner investment capital. The real hook is not what Sol mentions above ( although they are all standard sweeteners for this kind of thing ) but the fact that it's based on a consumable that must be purchased from the manufacturer. Plus, it's DRM ready, so no third party consumables. That's a wet dream for your average venture capitalist, hence the success.

Ye. Business these days isnt about being profitable. Its about getting investors.

Cena_mark
I think they figured it would be like a Kureg but for juice.

Maggot Brain
It's not like it's hard to hack Kureg.

Maggot Brain
Ok, guys, here is the idea; it's shoe for your hat. It's call a Shat and will cost at lest ten times as much as a normal shoe.

The most frustrating part is that the basic design isn't that bad. Juicers are notoriously messy and hard to clean. A closed press and a space is a clever idea but why do I need their permission every time to make their juice in my house? What are they hiding in the juice?
Oscar Wildcat
The problem, MB, is your bad BM, your Business Model that is. With a good BM your Shat could be off the ground and flying. Without it. the Shat will just cower there deep in your creative bowels, cramping your style and flavoring your flatulence.

This showed up in my recommended videos and was so of I had to look up the whole story.

Apparently, people are just buying the packs of fruit, mushing them up by hand and squeezing the juice into glasses without having to buy the juicer at all.
Space Odin
This isn't a bubble at all folks!
cognitivedissonance
Right, but isn't the point of juicing that you're juicing fresh fruit? I thought that was the entire point. Shows what I know.
boner
The Soylent drinkers needed someone to laugh at.
Hooker
So to understand this, it costs more than a normal juicer, you have to have it near a WiFi access point, you need a smartphone to control it, you have to buy special packages (of pre-juiced juice)? Is there any advantage this thing provides at all that I'm not understanding?
SolRo
Not having to wash, peel and cut your own fruit/veggies?

NewHeavenSockman
i already imagined every juicero buyer as a human version of squidward, so this hits the spot
