Spotlighting Genius: BitLock
BitLock is one of the most exciting Kickstarter campaigns we’ve come across in awhile. It’s an ingenius new product that eliminates the need for keys to your regular old U-Lock. Using bluetooth, Bitlock senses proximity of your device to the lock and automatically locks or unlocks when you’re within, or out of, a three foot radius. That alone would make the project worth supporting, but the Bitlock app also records the bike’s location, maps your ride, calories burned and how much CO2 you saved. You can even share the location of your bike to others and allow them access. So you can essentially create your own bike sharing network. Check out the video for all of BitLock’s feature’s then go back their campaign!
