Support the Clap Off Bra Answered

Hey everybody!

I put the clap off bra on Kickstarter to try to raise some funds to have it manufactured. The way Kickstarter works is that I only get the funds pledged if my funding goal is met. This is a good way to see if the clap off bra is actually a viable product. I am excited to see what happens.


Wouldn't that be "inconvenient" in any place with applause?

No. It is looking for two claps within a certain period. I can even make the clap pattern more elaborate (which I may in version 2.0)

Ok, as long is it has come form of fail safe LOL I know some persons that clap 2-3 times when laughing at things.....which could be embarrassing to say the least.

It needs some design improvements. A good bra enhances the shape of the breasts, rather than simply covering. Yes, I understand the difficulty since it has no straps...

How's THAT for a challenge? :)

Clap Off Bra v1.1 was a step forward in that direction. (Google "Kathy Lee Clap Off Bra")

Version 2.0 is coming soon. I think it will be a great improvement on the original design.

Although I am sincerely happy to hear that you have discovered a method of turning subjective judgments into objective ones, I must be obliged to stand by my statements unless you share this wondrous method. I do wonder, however - have you attempted reading your postings before hitting submit? I tend to think you have not, as surely if you had, you would have discovered exactly how patronizing and condescending they sound ("Sometimes we get caught up in our own newly-found confidence, that we don't realize that what we are working on is immature or just flat out bad." Thank you, Grandpa. Maybe you can teach the undergrads how to tie their shoes next.).

I find myself moved to inquire who precisely urinated in your breakfast cereal.

I always love your replies Lithium my friend :D

They're right on the money while not being consending or anything! They just put a smile on my face :D Although at first I myself wasn't sure this project could be markteable but after some research I found a bikini that dissolves in water :D :p So yeah I think this could be profitable :D

But for that person to say this project is not awesome? Shame on him! :o This is great! Me and my friends where busy all day when that project came out to contemplate how we could get the hottest girls to wear it :p

Haha, thank you! That's nice of you to say. :)

I wouldn't be surprised if Randy becomes a multi-billionaire, slowly developing product after product, building his own little empire which ultimately turns into a monopoly on all clothing manufacture in the world. This company will, I imagine, be named something like "RandyCo". After which, we can say we knew him before he was cool, and be all hipster and such. Maybe he'll remember the little people, but I doubt it. Probably we will become wage-slaves in some factory of his in a far-flung town nobody has ever heard of. There will be a poster of him on the wall in the tiny, cramped closet humorously referred to as "the break room" (for nobody who wishes to remain employed in RandyCo takes a break), and we will idolize it. Once, we'll think he is coming for a visit, and ecstatically bolt from our machines, but it will only be a state raid looking for drugs and undocumented workers, and this disappointment will ultimately crush our souls, sucking the life out of us, and for the remainder of our days we will stare vacantly into space no matter what we are doing. Whenever we speak, it is always the same barely-audible utterance: "Randy".

Or, you know, perhaps not.

All hail to our glorious new leader Randy! May the sun never set in his kingdom!

You sure know how to regal in that neon pink pesso-dismal optimistic view of yours. You've been hanging around that kelsey chap too much as his curmudgeoness is rubbing off on you.

Young Padawan... I agree that this is a bit immature, despite the fact that it is rather well done. But when a young lady is argueing for a clap-off bra, you should concede much faster than you did. You live, you learn, and if we're all lucky, you can clap off in the near future.

I for one hope this is the start of an entire line of clap-off clothing.

Why? Because he's so awesome, even he can't possibly fathom it? If that is what you mean, I quite agree with you. If, on the other hand, you mean anything else, then I must respectfully call you a nincompoop and assure you of my continued pity, Sir.

I don't like this.
Technology can improve our lives, but I'd rather fiddle with hooks...


Have you not watched the video? Look how much aggravation hooks and clasps cause!

Your hands are much closer. And women are probably more efficient (in cost/energy terms) at removing clothing.


More support, underwires! Will this appeal appear in the next newsletter?

Nah. I am counting on the forum community to come through with the $49,950 I need.

/me scrounges in pocket

I've got, like, 85 cents.

I need philanthropists much more than models. Models don't give money.

(I think I can hear rapidly receding footsteps...)

If you can come up with 15 more cents, you can donate! Check under the couch.

Will it really take $50k to get it into production??

I figure that with design costs of getting it manufacture-ready + minimum bulk rates for Made in China manufacturing + testing/certification and other hidden costs... yes. Maybe more even. Who knows... I would have to have the technical stuff and the bras manufactured separately and somehow assembled... All research says that manufacturing is expensive and difficult.


No wonder so many people try to be dot-com millionaires...

It'll cost at least that much to retain a half-decent lawyer to defend all the frivolous claims against this that it might put an eye out.
