    For one kilodollar: Your name listed in the credits as "Producer," your choice of a digital download or DVD of "The State of the Unit", and a pre-release "refrigerator" magnet kit of units celebrating the New SI.

    This kit, created specially for the "State of the Unit" movie, includes everything you need to make derived units on your own fridge or magnetic whiteboard. Includes all the SI units, many fundamental constants (and their current values), physical quantities, unit prefixes, numbers, common exponents, operands, Imperial units, and other necessary and fun mathematical symbols and characters.

    The kit also includes a booklet detailing the history and specifications behind the SI, and gives instructions on its proper use. Also discusses lesser-known units such as donkeypower and beard-seconds.

    All the geek physics fun you ever wanted! :-) Great for working with kids, or brushing up your own units' skills.

    Note: the kit will ship with the current values for fundamental constants. The unknown digits (pending decision by the General Conference on Weights and Measures) are indicated by "...".

    And a big "Thank you!"
