Keyless Lock Enables Cheap Peer-To-Peer Bike Sharing
BitLock is a Bluetooth-enabled bike lock that uses a smartphone as the key.
Just launched on Kickstarter, BitLock is a Bluetooth-enabled bike lock that uses a smartphone as the key.
Created by Mesh Motion Inc, BitLock detects the bike user’s presence within 3 feet of the bike. Users can easily lock or unlock their bikes without using their phones by pressing a button on the lock to release it.
BitLock also comes with an accompanying app that can record the lock’s location. The app can also monitor the rider’s cycling activity and provide statistics like number of miles cycled, CO2 emission, and even calories burned. The app also allows the users to give anyone they choose access to their bike.
