The MSL inserts to an extremely loud (115 decibel) emergency whistle which is great for survival situations, natural disasters, crime prevention, or to ward off animals. It's much louder and less exhausting than yelling for help. And the pitch of this whistle can be heard over loud rescue equipment or ambient noises.

What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter PBC is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative ideas that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Everything on Kickstarter must be a project with a clear goal, like making an album, a book, or a work of art. A project will eventually be completed, and something will be produced by it. Or in our case we're making "The MSL"
What are the basics of Kickstarter?
A project is a finite work with a clear goal that you’d like to bring to life- Making the Micro Safety Light.
The funding goal is the amount of money that a creator needs to complete their project (30k in our case).
Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing. No one will be charged for a pledge towards a project unless it reaches its funding goal. This way, creators always have the budget they scoped out before moving forward.
A creator is a person or team behind the project idea, working to bring it to life - UV Paqlite is the creator.
Backers are folks who pledge money to join creators in bringing projects to life (That's YOU).
Rewards are a creator's chance to share a piece of their project with their backer community i.e. Pick how many MSLs (a discounted price) you want!
Why is funding all-or-nothing?
All-or-nothing funding is a core part of Kickstarter and has a number of advantages:
It's less risk for everyone. If a project doesn’t reach its funding goal, creators will not be expected to complete their project without the funds necessary to do so, and backers will not be charged.
It motivates. Adding a sense of urgency motivates your community to spread the word and rally behind your project.
It works. Of the projects that have reached 60% of their funding goal, 98% were successfully funded. We find that projects either realize and surpass their goal, or they never fully take off.
Why do people back projects?
Many backers are rallying around their friends' projects. Some are supporting a new effort from someone they've long admired. Some are just inspired by a new idea, while others are motivated to pledge by a project's rewards.
Backing a project is more than just pledging funds to a creator. It's pledging your support to a creative idea that you want to see exist in the world.
Where do backers come from?
The majority of initial funding usually comes from the fans and friends of each project. If they like it, they'll spread the word to their friends, and so on. Press, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and Kickstarter itself are also big sources of traffic and pledges. Altogether, millions of people visit Kickstarter every week.
What do backers get in return?
Backers that support a project on Kickstarter get an inside look at the creative process and help that project come to life. They also get to choose from a variety of unique rewards offered by the project creator.
Project creators keep 100% ownership of their work, and Kickstarter cannot be used to offer equity, financial returns, or to solicit loans.
Use the "Pulse Mode" on walks, hikes, campin & backpacking trips, it makes you more visible in the dark without draining battery power. (Watch Video)
