New Bike Lock Makes Thieves Throw Up
Bike locks don't really work. A serious thief can even cut through the thick U-shaped ones in less than a minute. So it's come to chemical warfare.
There's a new crowdfunding project on Indiegogo right now called the SkunkLock, it's either genius or diabolical.
The SkunkLock is a bike lock that's filled with a special noxious chemical gas. When a thief cuts through the lock, it releases the gas and makes them start vomiting uncontrollably.
The inventors say the gas only spreads about two feet, that way other people in the area won't get sick, but the thief is screwed.
If you want to preorder one, it'll cost you $109. They're planning on shipping them in June, assuming their lawyers determine that the locks are actually legal.
