About

I had the idea for the LiteStem in 2013, but because I've been embroiled in law school I didn't have time to pursue it, and I kinda forgot about it. I saw that some other group called Lumineer is trying to make a bicycle stem with an incorporated LED light and remembered my design. I thought, "Hey, these guys are doing this on Kickstarter, why not me?" I realize those guys have their light up here as well, but my design is different in that the LED lamp is vertically adjustable on the fly. So, therefore I think it's more useful. 

I would need funds to pay a metal worker and a wiring guy to rig up a prototype. After that I need to present the project to a potential manufacturer. I would also like to pursue a patent, and I simply don't have the money to do that right now. 

So, if you are interested in having a stem on your bicycle with an incorporated, ADJUSTABLE light, feel free to drop me a line, or donate to the cause! Thanks!

Risks and challenges

I think the biggest challenge is going to be figuring out who I should talk to to make this happen. I'm going to start with the patent professor at my law school, and take it from there.
