Today, product designer Gary Bart announced the launch of his latest venture, Stem Innovation, LLC. The Florida-based company will focus on the development of iOS accessory products.

“Exciting opportunities now exist for forward-thinking manufacturers to deliver compelling solutions driven by mobile devices,” said Bart. “Stem’s mission is to enable users to connect their mobile products to their personal environment using the power of apps.”

Just so you know…Gary Bart founded and formerly served as CEO of XtremeMac. XtremeMac was acquired by Imation in 2008.

Stem’s first products are being introduced through Apple retail and online stores for the 2010 Holiday shopping season.

Today they announced the TimeCommand audio alarm dock for iPod touch, iPhone and iPad, and Stem:Connect companion App.

The audio alarm dock features a precisely-tuned acoustic system with Digital Signal Processing and proprietary Stem:Sonic iQ technology as well as the ability to control a connected bedside lamp with the touch of a button.

The Stem:Connect App adds a variety of user-customizable features, including a 10-band graphic equalizer, bass enhancer and free Internet radio playback. It also allows the user to control the dimming of the bedside lamp as well as automatically turning the lamp on or off upon waking or sleeping.
