students from belarus invented led bicycle lights

Two students from Belarus (Artem Stavenko, who is studying at a London college and an Oxford student Cyril Chikeyuk) took part in a famous TV-show on BBC and interested the jury with their invention. This TV-show called "Dragon’s Den" is famous throughout the world. It gives a great opportunity for business amateurs, who don’t have enough money, to develop their own business ideas. The participants present their know-how to the jury, which includes major financiers. If these financiers approve of the invention, they provide the participant with the needed amount of money.


The invention of the boys deals with luminescent advertisement on bicycle wheels. The technology is simple: four LED strips with programmed control are mounted on the spokes of the wheels. While running, the wheels turn into light panels, where any kind of image and text can be created. The idea aroused great interest in two financiers, so, they decided to give boys $150.000 for the development of the idea.

At the moment boys are working on the details of the programme. Very soon the glowing bicycles will appear in the British market and, maybe, in the whole world’s market.
