    Very interesting, but the donation discounts don't make sense. Donate $3599 and get 40% off; donate $4499 and get 25% off???

    Looks to me like they got it just right. Earlier you get on board the better the deal. They get what they want as quick as possible giving away as little value as they can get away with. Clever pricing strategy that hopefully bodes well for their commercial future with the product.

    OK, so you know they didn't offer the higher levels from the beginning?

    Pretty cool. I had looked at water jets back before some of the car/bike shows really started using them and I forget how many tons of weight you had to plan for between the machine and water reservoir, not to mention the $100k price tag.

    I saw someone do the operating cost math and they're pretty expensive to run. Would be a ton of fun though.

    Good point.

    I just thought it was a very rational (from their point of view) way to price what they are selling.

    Kickstarter really interests me because of the opportunity it gives this kind of product to do funding, sales and market research in one hit in a way that would have been very difficult to achieve without it.
