Bike lock spews dye when would-be thieves try to snatch your ride

What we have here is a bike lock that has compressed air and colored dye running throughout the lock. When a would-be thief cuts through the lock, said thief along with the bike and everything within a few feet is then sprayed with the dye along with SmartWater, which is an invisible ink.

But the lock itself doesn’t seem to be too bad given its theft deterrent feature. I don’t own a bike so I’m not up on all the latest bike locks, but the lock barrel and lever components are encased in hardened steel and Dupont Hytrel molding.

Ingenious. Someone license the SmartLock ASAP.
