Bike Lock Lifts Your Bike Out of Reach

The wildly popular video of this German bike lock prototype blew me away. Clamp your bike to the motorized unit, and it scurries up a lamp post, securing your bike in the sky. [via GOOD]

    1. simples-a microswitch that reverses the motor if it hits an obstruction. Should have that anyways, Im guessing. I suppose since its an IR device-the tech behind a TVBgone could jam IR activity if your bikes up there, obv not jam YOUR IR activity.

      1. That’s makes sense.  Also, you don’t have to carry a few pounds of metal and motors around in your backpack.  It would them become an added source of income for the owner, probably the local municipality (which will now have an incentive to encourage theft of bikes not using their protection racket, uh I mean protection system.).
