The worlds very first auto-unlocking smart bike lock has been launched over on Kickstarter this month by the name of LINKA, which has been designed by Velasso.
LINKA features tamper alerts, auto-unlock, built-in siren, keyless access and more and has been specifically designed to find a way to eliminate the opportunity for bikes to be stolen.
Watch the video below to learn more about the new bike lock from its creators, who also explain :
“How is LINKA unique? We discovered that 85% of bikes that are stolen are ridden away inconspicuously. By focusing mainly on immobilizing the wheel and locking it to the frame, we can seriously reduce the risk of a bike getting stolen, as it become a lot more suspicious to carry an alarming bike!
At it’s core, LINKA is a powerful bike lock mounted to your frame, so it’s always ready. To lock it, simply tap the button and you’ll be recognized securely through your phone. A 9mm hardened square steel ring automatically slides into place making your bike impossible to ride away.
Now, we need your help to bring the first ever Auto-unlocking Bike Lock to the market and really prevent thieves from riding our beloved bicycles!”
The LINKA project was looking to raise $25,000 in pledges to go into production but has already raised more than double thanks to over 400 backers, with still 19 days remaining on their campaign.
