SmartLock – Shoots Dye On Would Be Thief

SmartLock Exploding Lcok

I grew up in Florida and 3 out of my 4 beach cruiser bikes stolen… no joke.  The initial shock of coming out and finding your bike, which was locked up, gone sucks big time.

Finally a smart lock… appropriately named the SmartLock.  The SmartLock works like a normal lock in that you wrap it around your bike and a fixed object.  The fun starts when someone tries to cut the lock as it is filled with compressed air and liquid dye.  Ready for the bummer… the lock is still in concept phase… but will hopefully make it to market.

    this is pretty cool – but don’t they still steal the bike?

    Not only do they steal the bike. But, with anything using compressed air, that thing has to leak over time. Right?

    Yep your bike is still gone and the bad guy has paint on his leg – big deal?!
