Microcontroller led wristband for cyclists with bluetooth option

Project Description:
I have a patent on what is called a smart glove or a wristband to be used by cyclists to improve their visibility and communicate their intentions more clearly to drivers. It uses a small accelerometer that determines the cyclist hand signals for turning and stop and activates LEDs within the glove. I have a prototype board design that uses a pic microcontroller and is programmed currently using PicbasicPro. The design functions well but has some limitations with the use of a glove and I would like to adapt the electronics into a wristband. The wristband would have multiple LEDs that could be seen from front and back. I would also like to charge via usb and be water resistant, if not near waterproof to hold up with sweat and rain. I also want to look at some type of wireless or Bluetooth communication to activate remote led light indicators that can act as turn signals and brake lights.

I am open to other microcontroller platforms such as arduino. I have the existing pic source code, prototype board layout, prototype PCB design for a starting point. The current design uses a MEMS accelerometer.

The first part of the project would be the wristband with LED design and the second part would be the addition of Bluetooth to the wristband and a LED Bluetooth activated signal. The wristband design itself is open for discussion. It could be a flexible strip of very bright LEDs in a silicone translucent jacket with either a flexible stretch portion or an adjustable clasp like a watchband.

We would need a confidentiality agreement for more discussion. I would also like some design input as well as Prototype and possibly manufacturing quote.. I can provide a concept rendering once the NDA is signed. The rendering is meant for concept and may not be able to be manufactured exactly as Modeled.

Please estimate a bid and sign the NDA for more information.
