A Bike Lock That Can Raise Your Bike Up a Lamp Post

YouTube Preview Image

Let’s face it, no matter how strong, tough and complicated your lock is, motivated bike burglars will find a way to steal your bike. But what if your bike lock can climb up a post and raise it off the street?



That’s what Conrad, a German company, is showing in the video (along with awesome development stages). They’ve built a contraption that attaches a lock to motorized skateboard wheels so it can scale a lamp post. Basically, attach your bike to the lock and the lock to the post and it’ll zoom up out of arm’s reach. It’s a pretty (hilariously) genius idea that’ll surely curb bike robbers…until they start using a ladder.
