Wednesday, June 15th - Stephen Britt, Fast Forward Cycle Pedals
Post date: Jun 01, 2011 2:27:9 AM
Kingston University, Penrhyn Road Campus, Townhouse building (Room TH102)
Stephen Britt conceived the power assisting cycle pedals in 2008 when he was stuck in traffic during a 90 week roadworks on his commute. Playing with a Pedalite and reversing the idea gave him the inspiration for the product. Since then he has won £54,000 in awards, including Barclays - Take One Small Step, had 31,500 people view a video of the product and left work to develop and commercialise the product. UK patent was granted in January 2011, PCT is filed. The product needs pre-production development to relevant standards, marketing and production to launch. The prototype will be available to try on a cycle trainer after the talk.
As usual there'll be post-presentation workshop by Bob / inventor clinic TBC followed by (after 9pm) an opportunity for further networking in the Grove Tavern.
For future reference: The July meeting is not in the usual room in the Townhouse due to building work. The meeting will be held in PRJG2011 in the John Galsworthy Building (through the main entrance to the university building in Penrhyn Road.
