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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.
