KHET - a laser-based board game

Popsci has a gallery of a dozen "Best Kids' Toys for Adults." This is the one that sounds most interesting to me:
Lasers have come to board games. In KHET, each player attacks with a class-two laser beam (read: the kind that won't blind you); the beam reflects off mirrors on one or more sides of the pyramid game pieces; any piece that gets illuminated is considered a hit and gets removed from the board. The goal: to take out your opponent's Sphinx. The board has as many gameplay options as chess, but, the inventor claims, is as simple to understand as checkers. $40.
