Whenever you are riding a bike or stopped to rest, Mstick notices your movements with G-sensor. Mstick automatically changes color and animation when it recognizes change in your movement. This allows for more safe riding as the light turns red when you are stopped and turns back to white when you begin riding. Please check the 'Prototype Review' video for more details.

Best designed 2 mounts for each Sports Light environments.- Bicycle/Running.

We designed 2 different mount types for the Sports Light function which includes bicycle riding and running. As seen in pictures, both mounts are similar in appearance but details are noticeably different. We considered the environment when used for each of riding and running and came up with most functional design. The running mount is scheduled to be released in April of 2016 as we are continuing to further develop this item.
 

Risks and challenges

Technical Challenge:

MOLT Team faced numerous challenges due to technical difficulty to make all desired functions into reality. Technologies involved in each function are complex and difficult to realize. However, we are pursuing to utilize all functions for Mstick with smart phone and make life simpler for end users.

We spent more time than we initially expected during the R&D stage thus technical bugs are mostly eliminated and functions are ready for our backers.

MOLT Team is made up of specialists from different sectors with deep experience in developing and designing products. We love what we do and we are all very proud of our work.

Design:
Mstick is created to keep the product user friendly. Therefore, Mstick fits in any interior settings and outdoor environment. The size of Mstick is optimal for all settings and usability and brightness of the LED light has been maximized.

Delivery:
We expect to release the product by the end of April. The release date would be obeyed unless severe technical or logistical issue.

International Logistics:
We are aware of issues of international delivery from other projects in Kickstarter. Our expert logistic staffs will proactively assist recipients to eliminate potential delays or missing products during transportation. Unfortunately, some countries impose duties, fees and taxes which will be recipients' responsibility.
