The virtual lock for your bike is called bikespicke, and it seems awesome so far


Virtual lock ? what does that possibly means ? To understand the concept, you have to know how this add-on for bikes works. First, just place it on your bike.

As the bikespike is GPS monitored, you can choose in the Iphone app when it is or isn’t supposed to move:

Now, if the bike moves when it’s not supposed to, you will be notified, and a SMS can be send to friends who live nearby, with the exact location of the bike. Of course you can go and search it yourself if ou prefer (I think I do).

Secondly, it can be used with fitness apps, for the basics stuff, speed, journey, cal, stuff like that. The SDK is open, so if the project succeed, other developers will be able to develop their own apps. Isn’t it neat ?

If you want to own one, you’de better pre-order one, and spread the word around you, as for now, it isn’t likely to be funded

  1. certainly like your web site however you need to test the spelling on several
    of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I to
    find it very troublesome to inform the truth then again I’ll definitely come back again.
