Bicycle Generator Lightbar Indicator ----- Inventors William Evans (Princeton University), Andrew Zwicker, and Shana Weber (Princeton University)

This invention is a series of incandescent light bulbs that progressively brighten in response to a bicycler’s physical effort. By monitoring the number of bulbs illuminated in a “light tower,” the bicycler is able to judge the effort that he or she is expending. At the top of the light tower, an electronic bell indicates that the user has generated the amount of power desired.
