Welcome to Amp - motion and gesture activated strip lighting. Amp is completely customizable to the way you ride. It is designed to work in small form-factors like the front post of a bicycle, your backpack, the bottom side of a Boosted Board, or wherever else you can attach it. On top of that, you can add as many lights as you want to the four lighting channels and customize sections of the strips to behave in different ways (braking, turning, headlights, custom sections, etc). If that wasn’t enough, there’s an open Bluetooth LE API to control how those lights activate.
Of course, it also just works out of the box so you don’t have to overthink it.
We’ve ridden thousands of miles with the Amp to find the ways it can break. It’s been street tested on every surface ranging from silky smooth multi-use paths to pothole riddled roads in Chicago, Washington DC, Boulder, Portland, Seattle, and Indianapolis. We’ve put all of this back into making a product that’s surprisingly resilient to the elements for it’s size.
This product is built by hackers for hackers. Leading up to the launch, every bit of the hardware and software stack will be well documented so that you can build for it yourself. You have the ability the reprogram the Amp to your liking over USB or the 6 pin programming header. With the power and motion sensing taken care of in a mobile form factor, you can put the ESP32 through its paces with the ability to control both APA102 and WS212B style LED strips. As with all open hardware / software products, the limit is your imagination.
"an excellent solution for those that may be using their hands to maintain balance or don’t have access to an on/off switch."
