OK, it doesn’t bite – the Smart Lock is a prototype bike lock designed by Michael Lambourn, that sprays the would-be bike thief with paint / smart water / skunk scent / ebola-infected blood / whatever when they try to cut it.
Basically it’s a regular-ish looking lock that’s full of some fluid under pressure. When the lock gets cut, the thieving toe-rag gets the full benefit of the pressure relief. Like in this demonstration video:
Bike thieves are pretty stoopid – someone should tell this guy that there are bikes all around him. The lock’s just secured to the railings ;-)
What do you think – good product / bad product / lawsuit waiting to happen / bike thieves’ just deserts?
