    Elite Operative ("007"-Level): In addition to the above, we'll also send you the fully assembled laser tag target -- and not just soldered into an ordinary perfboard.

You will have similar experiences.

    Tactical Party Leader: In addition to the above, if you email us a photo of yourself wearing your Elite Operative ("007"-Level) hardware inside the pocket of a white dress shirt, while holding a martini glass, we'll do the following:

    1) Put the above photo and your name on a "thank you" page on our website (thoughtstem.com);
    2) Ship you a Party Kit, which includes three "guns" that you can embed into various everyday objects. To help spark your creativity, we'll also include a pamphlet that describes how we like retrofit things like dry erase markers, books, and potted plants to make cool traps.

    No need to use a TV remote for a gun anymore. And now you can host your own laser tag party!
