Did anybody do anything illegal ?

Stupidity isn't necessarily a crime.

I can choose to pay upfront to a kickstarter and take the risk in return for getting it cheaper/earlier or I can wait until it's available at Walmart and buy it with the rest of the punters.

Of course the chance of anyone making a successful electro-mechanical consumer product on their first attempt is zero, but not knowing that is equally the buyers fault.
