Rear Lights LED Strip for top cases / boxes - Anyone interested?

Hi Guys!

I've been working for a while on this, tested it for a year and now I'm thinking that there may be interested riders that would like to see this become a commercial kit product.

The prototype uses a programmable LED strip and micro-controller to create an additional rear lights set (turn signal, brakes) for a top case/box. In this form it's not really a product, but it could become a kit for any type of top case. While my LT has ample rear lights, I still see distracted drivers on the streets that are oblivious to motorcycle light signals. While I have no proof, the LED strip could help attract the attention of those texting while driving (I see so many of them, recently a young girl driving a child and keeping her head down to text while rolling at 50 mph in a curve).

I'm thinking that this may particularly help bikes like the GS when all cases are on and the rear-lights get somewhat obscured underneath.
In the future multi-segment lights and wire-tap-free versions are also possible.

If enough interest is shown, I may go for a small startup or something.

Please see attached photo and

Looking forward to your valued input!
Safe riding!
