Powering Pedal Powered Live Music Events

Musician Gabe Dominguez rolls into the shop looking for an ultraportable sound system to do SHAKE YOUR PEACE! shows in beautiful natural locations. After a quick and dirty build, the show happens at Provo Canyon in Utah, and includes the famed Pink Unitard moment. An ultracapacitor inside Gabe’s speaker fizzles and smokes when a well meaning strong adult cyclist wearing a pink unitard overpedals it. Aha! Ultracapacitors need a protection circuit and pedalers need an indicator to show them how hard to pedal. These two features become the core functionality of the Pedal Power Utility Box.
