Ideas We Love – Exploding Bike Lock


I like many other cyclists have suffered multiple bike thefts in my years on the road. I’ve pretty much come to accept it as part of the deal – commuting in a big city. That is until I recently read about a lock that might give cyclists some peace of mind.

Michael Lambourn‘ Smart Lock is a cable lock filled with pressurized, visible ink that explodes if the lock is cut. It is definitely an innovative idea but the ink will spray on anything nearby and can ultimately be washed off. No doubt it might deter theft but I wonder how effective the lock will really be.
