The project calls itself the “first smart bike lock”.  While Bitlock may have beat them to the title, Lock8 is a brilliant, idea and probably the most full-featured bike lock we’ve ever set eyes on.

Beyond being smartphone-activated – letting the lock lock itself when you walk away – Lock8 features a loud alarm system that will sound if any thief tries to steal your bike away.  Cutting, Freezing, Melting, or removing in any way triggers the Lock8’s alarm.  It’s not as internet savvy as competitor Cricket, but manages to be a better ‘dumb’ lock.

If the alarm detects anything happening, it will also send you a notification, letting you catch the thief in action and red-handed.
