This Innovative Bike Lock Knows If You've Been In A Crash
And you don't have to memorize a combination to unlock your bike - you just have to press a button on your phone.However, if you can't be bothered with that, the app can go keyless through Bluetooth, where the lock opens when you walk up to it.And that's just one hi-tech feature. The lock also has sensors that can tell if someone is holding onto your bike too long, potentially trying to steal it. If that's the case, the app will send you a text alert.
Additionally, if it senses a crash-like movement when you're riding, the app sends a message asking if you if you're okay. If there's no response, it will reach out to either rescue agencies or emergency contacts.And if all that still doesn't impress you, the lock is powered by built-in solar panels ,making it "virtually chargeless," said Al-Kahwati. Skylock will be available by late 2014 for $159. After the "introductory period," the makers say the price will rise to $250.
