This indiegogo project is pretty cool! The app also features crash detection and can alert authorities if you need an ambulance or something

Bsnyc had a piece on it a while ago; http://bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com/2014/05/simplification-by-complification.html?m=1
Panned it of course. But did point out some things, like sometimes you have to lock your bike at night, etc.

My initial reaction was…

Oh great I won’t be able to unlock my bike if the battery dies on the lock OR my phone.

There are some cool things about it. But the pluses don’t outweigh the negatives.

Sounds like just the thing for someone else to spend time, sweat and money to debug. Meanwhile, I’ll just concentrate on trying to remember to take my U-lock key with me.
