    ENCORE Level - by popular demand: For those of you just arriving at the blue laser party, this level allows you to get a single unit in your choice of black or white shell at a bit less than the combo unit. We wish we could keep offering the earlier prices to everyone, but our source for the solid state quantum tunnel for lasing material raised their price. So for a September batch we have to consider that. We're still subsidizing the manufacturing because we really want to share this blue laser with the world! Encore! Encore!

    Since KS has a $10,000 limit, we are offering this reward as an off-menu item for those of you looking for a more....exclusive experience. Our new patent-pending laser garment will make Lady Gaga's "Pyro Bra" she wore at the 2011 Toronto Monster Ball look like its in the minor leagues! Our Gaga Laser bra has been engineered to allow you or someone you love to beam over 400 blue laser beams out hundreds of feet from their chest. Better than Gaga's bra because, instead of pyrotechnics (one time use and highly dangerous!), our design uses the KS blue laser which will meet international compliance and certifications and allows for free, no worry movement on stage. And it can be reused!

    Pledge 10,000 to reserve the design consultation. You will be heavily involved in the design and creation of this unique garment, adapted for you. For an additional fee offline - (we estimate +$40,000) your one-of-a-kind laser garment will be produced by our world-class European based manufacturer, specifically to your anatomy and style specifications. Since it is a Bra/Vest you will be able to wear it with your choice of clothing, unlike the "Pyro Bra" which can only be worn as-is due to its fireproofing needs. Our bra/vest device is light weight (estimated at 400g with batteries), and battery operated for entertainment duration. C'mon... we know you want it!
