pinit fg en rect gray 20   Conrad Climbing Bike Lock Prototype

Conrad, maker of toys in Germany, came up with an innovative bike lock that climbs up the pole where you park your bike. With this new invention, bike thieves will have a difficult time stealing a bike, unless they use a ladder to get to it. The company sponsored a campaign titled “3 teams, 14 days, 150,000 Opportunities” and Team A from Hamburg submitted this invention.

The climbing bike lock is shaped like a hexagon with roller wheels attached to it. The lock is electronic and the whole mechanism is used with a remote control.

It’s not shown how the arms of the climbing bike lock can be adjusted if used on a thinner pole.

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…
