The party bowl -- the party involved was invented and I was.
It was thought I would housing college and when it always is yeah now and after how many man -- I think the couple.
Not that I drink regularly but anyway so.
We were a party and there's no lighting -- -- figured why not create something they can do everything in one and have the convenience of it.
So it's a strobe light a Disco light of moonlight beach to music and -- controlled by remote control that is so cool -- Kevin when he elected Altria and and -- great job is very visually demonstrable love that from that standpoint I was in Vegas last week the DJ scene is just exploding globally self.
Vijay and -- global superstars -- electronic dance music is a new craze it's very mainstream in that regard.
One thing I would say is this.
It's a party -- but it's just lights how -- we'd maybe get some music in there is that upon a possibility that is you know I was thinking that we talk about that a look at Bluetooth very expensive but I.
I think we begin at them.

You know but the one advantage -- coffee in our business people would they'll spend money.
The clean stains but to prevent states if it's preventative took a little bit of -- negative from that standpoint prevention is a tough sell.
So I'm out what's the price.
It sat thirteen nine -- little expensive maybe a couple of for thirteen manufacture bringing cost down.
You might be able to sell this to solutions cataloged and various places like that so you might have something here.
You know what I was just on airplanes over the weekend is that this is right up style -- Alley isn't perfect.

Found something that you should.
Be able to sell a billion copies it.
