Tampa Bay New Wire: Florida Entrepreneurs Kickstart Bright Idea - Night Tech Gear
ORLANDO, Fla. (Feb. 24, 2015) — Orlando entrepreneurs Doug and Renata Storer believe they have pioneered a way to keep runners, walkers and hikers safe and injury-free while exercising after the sun has gone down — Night Runner Shoe Lights. This week, they launched a month-long crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to raise $35,000 for the first round of production.
Night Runner consists of two small, featherweight, water-tight LED lights that clip securely to each shoe and flood the path ahead with light up to 30 feet. The light units provide 270 degrees of visibility so runners or walkers can be seen from the front, sides and even from behind. The rugged lights also feature rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that remain bright for four to eight hours.
