Now is the future, and Steve Hunt shows us this with his new invention the Halo Bike Lock. If you think this is like your traditional lock, you have another thing coming. When the Halo lock is tampered with, it will send a text message to your phone.
The Halo Bike Lock uses a Wi-Fi card, known as the “Eye-Fi”, which is common in cameras. As of now, you need to make sure your bike is locked up in a Wi-Fi zone, or else the Halo lock will not send out a text message. This is an incredible invention, but the two drawbacks we see are, getting a text message, rushing out to your bike and going toe to toe with a bike thief (maybe not a bad thing for some), or your phone not having reception and coming out to see your bike stolen, and getting a text message 20 minutes later.
