What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

ALLight aims to to take advantage of modern projectors with keeping the light level. This is a huge evolution in headlights as it keeps the rider's vision of the up coming road visible without relying on street lights. Not to mention that it does not blind the on coming traffic. 

When you take your bike, scooter, or moped on turns you are not turning your handle bars but rather leaning the vehicle at higher speeds, about 10mph or more). Not seeing the road ahead at night is a major safety concern, and blinding the oncoming traffic is no better. 

 While all motorcycles experience the lean angle even a slight lean 5-10 degrees could be enough to not see something on the road in front of you.

The following graph shows how fast your lean angle while taking a turn at the following forward speeds. Remember the horizontal axis is in ft/s not mph.

"I have always been into motorcycles and going fast as a kid. I could not help but observe how the headlights of these cool motorcycles seems to be a generation or two behind cars. Always have known about bikers wanting to modify their bikes with cool projector beams but thought it was dangerous. The day I saw a gimbal motor stabilize a camera especially withstanding the force of inertia..... a lightbulb went off"

-Peymon Hashimoto Founder

Majority of motorcycles have a H4,H7, or H11 headlight bulb socket type. With the universal thread mount and the three included washer adapters, we are able to install in any motorcycle headlight light socket.

H4 bulb socket type install is as easy as changing a bulb.

H7 and H11 headlight socket types have a longer install process. Removing the headlight assembly from the motorcycle and baking off the headlight cover is needed to install the Allight Retrofit. 

 We are still in the process of designing but we are able to say that Allight Retrofit will have the following:

  • Each unit will have a low beam and high beam function
  • Of course it will keep the projector beam pattern level
  • 3 pin connector to most headlight assemblies

Risks and challenges

ALLight Retrofit has been designed to fit through the headlight bulb socket for easy installation but also for some reason if it does not fit the design allows to be installed by baking off the headlight for a guaranteed installation process.

Since we are able to keep the light level at all times and not blind other motorists we can now increase the power of the light source as much as possible. Challenge will be to keeping the light source as a led board and cooling of the heat from a more powerful led. This could require a copper heatsink that has cooper directly in contact with the led board. Copper would be double the cost of aluminium but has a much higher thermal conductivity. The high beams would not have a higher brightness power but rather a higher level direction of light. We would focus the light source power on the low beams.
