I'm really not sure why you'd want to risk that amount of money on an unknown outfit with very few real details, no software yet ( by their own admission) , and uncertain delivery time, when you can get a similar spec for a similar price from China right now.
Most reports I've seen on the various Chinese machines are that the hardware is basically OK, the software, like most Chinese software, is terrible to use but does just about work, and machines have typically paid for themselves pretty quickly.
The OpenPnP project is a potential route to fix the latter issue.
Feeders are still a problematic area, and there is no evidence that the Chipsetter guys are any closer than anyone else.
I'd be highly surprised if this makes its funding target, and if it does, how will it compare to what will the Chinese will be offering by the time this project delivers ?
