Skylock Smart Bike Lock

For the urban cyclist, the bike lock is simply a must. But hey, can we make these things a little bit cooler and less cumbersome to lug around? Yes we can.

The Skylock promises to do a ton of things that you probably just didn’t ever expect a bike lock to do. Connecting with your mobile device via Bluetooth, the auto unlock feature senses your approach and automatically unlocks it for you. You can also use Skylock’s capacitive touch buttons to unlock the device, so you’re not tied into using your phone. Skylock is also solar-powered, letting light recharge the battery. Skylock also notifies you if your bike is disturbed (physically—you’re on your own if you have an emotionally disturbed bike), and it even senses when you’ve been in an accident, using the app to alert your family, friends, or emergency personnel. At $159, the Skylock starts shipping next year. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
