That is quite difficult to predict since purchase prices change every day.

As soon as we come into more regular production of batches like
250 or 500 units each, cost will go down dramatically. But how much
can only be estimated if we really ask for quotations for that numbers.

At the moment everything is just a guess. The price for the Early Adopter
units was subsidized by donations (more are welcome!).

I thought about adding the design to some T-shirt store where
you can order yourself and we have no work with it...

Any suggestions?

Well it is youtube... Others already have recommended solutions.
