Lightcraft & launch costs

I saw this on tv last night:

They claim it will reduce launch costs for small satellites by "several orders of magnitude" within something like 5 years.

But I can't find any exact figures. Does anyone have an idea of about how many dollars/pound (or kg) we are talking about here, and will this thing really make it possible for the average joe (or company) to have their own satellites?

The future has arrived; it's just not evenly distributed.
